  1. [quote user="verviale"] .I did not realise until I saw a programme the other day, that people actually used a man made beach beside it years ago.[/quote]

    I worked at the old Royal Mint on Tower Hill for 5 yrs (1959/64), and there was definitely a beach between Tower Bridge and Traitors Gate, where children played at at low tide.

  2. Thought you all might like to see our cats!


    Frisky - between 15 & 20 yrs old!


    Topsy - originally from Gidea Park!


    Ilargi & Spot - two Basque cats.


    Sammy - sadly no longer with us.

    All have a lot of history; Frisky, Topsy, and Sammy all moved to France with us, and the other two were our son's in Spain, and came to us Christmas 2005 on a "temporary" basis!

  3. Chalus, Haute-Vienne, this evening; the other shot is the daytime view. Richard the Lion Heart was shot from the tower with a crossbow in 1199
