A GUIDE TO THE INDUSTRIAL ARCHAEOLOGY OF THE BOROUGH OF ELMBRIDGE
Only a limited number of books will be printed and each one will have a hand-embossed ‘Rambling Railwayman Books 70C’ crest on the inner cover with the Author’s signature if required which will make each one especially unique. The book is now available. Bird, an acknowledged expert on the subject.

Limericks A Form of Poetry? The form of poetry referred to as Limerick poems have received incredibly bad press and dismissed as not having a rightful place amongst what is seen as ‘cultivated poetry’. The reason for this is three-fold: The content of many limericks is often of a bawdy and humorous nature. A Limerick as a poetry form is by nature simple and short – limericks only have five lines.
And finally the somewhat dubious history of limericks have contributed to the critics attitudes.

The competition is open to all Fuller’s pubs nationwide. The fields are proving too wet to harvest. Currently he was around half way through his ha acres of oilseed rape at Penn Croft Farms, Farnham. Flotation tyres had been fitted to the combine to minimise any damage to soils. Behind the University SIC is a public footpath wandering through farmland and a small woodland. If I’m not catching up on work that I should have already done long ago, I often like to spend the gap time taking a walk up the footpath.
The way was clear however, and the disinterested gaze of grazing horses was the only acknowledgement of my presence. It’s becoming more and more respected.
The patent numbers you will find on the triangular plate on the timing cover and in period brochures refer to several Triumph features by now standard across the range. The T21 was designed from the outset as a machine incorporating for then; modern features and aimed to attract new buyers looking for clean inexpensive transport. The design brief was for a clean, high performance, cc roadster and the components and specifications applied reflect this.
A bolted on sub frame supports the seat and rear suspension while additional welded on brackets are provided for other components. The headset and engine bridge support are malleable-iron castings.

If you enjoy peace and natural beauty, then the gentle and remote stretches of the Upper Thames from its source to Lechlade will suit you. From Lechlade to Eynsford the river is full of such unexpected sights and delights, like kingfishers and otters, or families of ducks having their first swimming lesson across the river, or the sight of cows standing in the river water, their tails gently swishing away. This lovely area of England is bounded by the Cotswolds. Here you can take a cruise, hire a punt or motor launch, or just sit at one of the many riverside pubs and watch the scullers from the world-famous University Rowing Clubs in training.
From Oxford downstream the Thames meanders its way through beautiful countryside reaches and historic settlements, with an enormous and almost inexhaustible variety of places to visit. One of them – Marlow – is a gem of Georgian architecture, for instance. Alternatively, you can have the magical experience of actually being on the river itself.
You will be surprised as I was at how different your experience of the river will be when you are on board a boat, rather than standing on the bank! Photo Maidenhead courtesy David Auckland Historic sites of compelling interest abound, from tiny hamlets such as Mapledurham with its working watermill to the great castles and royal palaces of Windsor and Hampton Court. Though still 60 miles from Southend and the North Sea the Thames becomes tidal.
Twice a day the river flows back up towards its source, as the sea pushes its way up the estuary. Suburban gardens and green open spaces of stately parks rub shoulders with Georgian mansions, often set alongside new luxurious riverside homes built on former industrial sites.

The lithostratigraphy of the latest Triassic to earliest Cretaceous of the English Channel and its adjacent areas. Published by the Geological Society of London. It is a substantial paper 61 pages long with 26 diagrams. It is very good with much information, including facies and thickness maps, diagrams showing sea-level changes etc. It is easily readable by anyone who already knows the general geological succession and zonal schemes of the Dorset Coast.
Ainsworth, William Braham, F. The stratigraphy of the latest Triassic through to the earliest Cretaceous of the Portland – Wight Basin and its adjacent area may be subdivided using petrophysical gamma ray and interval transit time criteria, in association with gross lithology to allow a total of 50 lithological units to be recognised. Three units occur within the latest Triassic, 46 in the Jurassic and one in the earliest Cretaceous. The lithostratigraphy can be integrated into a biostratigraphic template using published data and subsequent observations based on micropalaontology ostracods, foraminiferids and palynology dinocysts, miospores.
Throughout the study area recognition of major lithostratigraphic and biostratigraphic events enables the chronostratigraphic framework of the basin to be determined, which has aided identification of regional stratigraphic breaks throughout much of the Portland – Wight Basin, including haiti in proximity to the Pliensbachian – Toarcian and the Aalenian – Bajocian boundaries, and also within the late Oxfordian. Although the majority of the lithostratigraphic events have been deduced to be isochronous, a number of lithological units exhibit significant diachroniety.

Sir Richard Weston – The founder of the Wey Navigation, Weston was an agricultural reformer who introduced revolutionary new land management practices that were to transform British farming. Owner of Sutton Place near Guildford, Weston was to build the canal after his experimentation with controlled flooding of pastures to boost hay yields. Weston is credited with introducing white clover and turnips into Britain. White clover is a protein rich fodder crop for cattle that has the added benefit of replacing nitrogen into the soil.
SOUTHERN SUNSET ’67’ This new book for summer is written and produced by John H. Bird, an acknowledged expert on the subject. There is a wide range of over colour and black & white archive photos and is sumptuously printed on glossy pages with hardback covers.
History[ edit ] Neolithic flints have been found and there are several round barrows on the heaths; such as the Bee Garden in rolling Albury Bottom, a scheduled ancient monument  and the “Herestraet or Via Militaris” of the Chertsey Charters ran through Chobham parish. In Roman silver coins of Gratian and of the time of a Valentinian , and copper coins of a Theodosius , Honorius , and another Valentinian, a spear-head and a gold ring, were found near Chobham Park in the parish.
Chobham appears in Domesday Book as Cebeham held by Chertsey Abbey , as it was at the time of the conquest, with interests also acquired by the time of its survey, , by two minor Norman figures, possibly bishops, Corbelin and Odin. Its Domesday assets were: Its earliest parts date from about although there may have been an earlier church on the site. It is dedicated to St Lawrence, who was martyred in Rome in Until the 19th century almost entirely surrounded by Chobham Common , which was heathland of little agricultural value compared to its central fertile belt, the village was isolated.
During mediaeval times, Chobham remained part of the Chertsey Abbey estates. As across the whole hundred which he dominated, the power of the Abbot of Chertsey was considerable.

It was first brought under the control of a turn-pike trust by Act of Parliament in , the terms of which were later amended by subsequent legislation. A series of triangular-shaped milestones were placed along its length, probably in the late eighteenth century, giving the distances from Hyde Park Corner, Portsmouth, and the nearest villages on either side.
