Last weekend I took another of my usual long roaming urban walks around my home area, this time a little further and thus completing nearly 15k. I do love a walk anyway, but I’m loving the fact I get to see so much, that I have simply driven past many times over the years without so much as care or thought. Apart from some lovely quirky houses and dodgy attempts at what I would call faux mansions along my route, it’s things like finding huge ornate iron gates that no longer lead to what may have been a real mansion that once stood there or the intriguing old facilities taken over by modern type housing estates. It all amuses me and makes me wonder about what was once there and what went on- love a bit of urban history.
So, in this week’s chatty bit wise, I thought, what odd or quirky buildings or sites have you discovered since the lockdowns situation had got you out and about on foot more.

Interesting still, was the new tracks I got to play this week from the likes of Amongst the Pigeons – Strange Eyes – Infra Violet – The Livelong June – Afterdark – Shelter Calm – Violet Orchestra, plus new remixes and more lovely classic artists along our merry way.
