The Bridge
The Bridge (Nikon D5300)

It was a windly old day in Barmouth when I took this, and when you get out into the estury it did get a little blowy but nothing as blowy as when you got to the ends of the bridge where walking ipright was difficult enough forget the idea of cycling which some people were happy enough to brave. Still it was a good walk to burn off some cake and chocs and avoid the dredful Christmas TV. It was also a good excuse to get some phone signal which was patchy at best in the house and in parts of the town, and phone signal was in abundance when you got to the other side at the station which wss overshadowed by a phone mast.

Wings Clipped
Wings Clipped (Nikon D5300)

Here at the Avro Heritage Museum they have a static Vulcan painted in blast white as it would have been when it was first created as a nuclear weapon delivery craft. Getting to the museum is interesting since you end up going through the old main gates of British Aerospace factory in Woodford and then have to navigate via the roads and the aircraft taxiways to what feels like the furthest end of the site.

The museum is OK to be honest, it's a little dry and a little amateurish it has to be said, but after chatting to one of the people there, this is just the start, with at least one more aircraft planned as a static exhibit and more info and displays, all planned to be there by the middle to the end of summer 2016..

Needless to say that the star of the museum is the static Vulcan and the Vulcan cockpit which was really surprisingly small. Now I knew it was small, but I somehow thought that it was laid out differently, what's worse is that for the lack of space in there, the real cockpit would have eben less space because the one in the museum has the co-pilot's chair missing, probably to help non-Vulcan pilots climb into the passenger seat without the whole experience being a health and safety nightmare.
