Camelford Camel. The historic Cornish town of Camelford has no proven connection to the legendary King Arthur other than “Camel” is very similar to “Camelot”. It also has no connections with camels. Notwithstanding this, the town hall weather vane depicts a golden camel.

This football pitch slopes steeply from left to right but the goal remains at a perfect right angle resulting in the left hand post being substantially shorter than the right hand post. The pitch even has some flood lighting. It was a shame there was no game going on. This pitch can be found in a park in Camelford, Cornwall

I couldn’t decide whether this was the act of a literary yarn bomber or a piece of knitted advertising outside the local library in Bridgnorth, Shropshire

Garages and petrol stations in country towns have a timeless quality. The type of place where they can repair a Morris Minor without the need for complex diagnostic software. Here are a couple of examples. Above is in Much Wenlock, Shropshire and below is in Newquay, Cornwall

A cute, little Royal British Legion club in Kinver, Staffordshire

The nearby constitutional club is much larger and therefore presumably much more popular. Apparently it does great pork baps though it seems you need to be a member to enjoy.

Charity shops are taking over everywhere and it is a sad indication of our dwindling economy. Yes I know we are no longer officially in recession but the only economic growth is in London which means the rest of the country is actually in a depression. Funny that the government never mentions this. Anyway enough of the politics.  I thought this charity shop was rather quaint and stylish and felt it particularly appropriate that it should be located in an old bank.

Small towns can lose their police stations. No more local bobbies on the beat. At least the buildings get put to alternative uses. Here are a couple of examples
