    Knole Park

    Knole is a vast mainly Jacobean private house built between 1455-1608 surrounded by a 1,000 acre deer park enclosed since 1406.
    The deer are still enjoying this glorious parkland oblivious of the golfers and many visitors.

    Don’t laugh, you’d need a lightening conductor too if you were stuck up here!

    No wonder kids get things like asthma, have you any idea how many thousands of gallons of horrible, paraffin like, fuel those things burn up there to drift down on us? Someone reckoned if all the passengers in a jumbo jet got in their individual cars and drove to their destination they would use about the same amount of fuel, at least it would be relatively clean petrol. Next time you see a vapour trail think of around three hundred tractors flying over.


    Rant over. It is a lovely picture.

    *calculates methane produced by vegetarian/vegans*
    "Hydrogen, carbon dioxide and methane are all produced in the gut and contribute 74% of the volume of flatus in normal subjects.[20] Methane and hydrogen are flammable, and so flatus containing adequate amounts of these can be ignited.[21] Not all humans produce flatus that contains methane." ref wiki

    Bluewater Shopping & Leisure Centre

    A repurposed Blue Circle chalk quarry, celebrates its 20th Birthday in a few days.
    Even with 13,000 parking spaces there is still space for lakes and a nature trail, at this time of year few people ventured out so we had a peaceful stroll.

    What's the deal with all the threes?
    Is having three towers an oast thing?
