Cholmondeley's Pictures

Vulcanisation
Vulcanisation (Nikon D5300)

A few weeks ago we were off to the Cholmondeley Pageant of Power, mainly to see the flypast of the Vulcan.The cars were good and we saw a bit of action on the lake, but the main event was the Vulcan obviously pictured here.To be honest it's the usual thing when we go to a car event... everyone else gets bored really quickly. I'm never sure why I just don't go on my own, still when we were there I found out that my daughter really liked it each time we went to see Touring Cars, until I discovered that she had mixed up Touring Cars with the Autosport show, how she did it I don't know but she did. To be honest we went to two Autosport shows and the second made me feel uncomfortable with a soon to be teenage daughter due t the roles of women in the show. Don't get me wrong, I am no prude but women in the second show just seened to be there for adornment and to stand around in tight lycra. At least in the first one we had Louise Goodman in the live arena giving Jason Plato a run for his money.

Anyway, back to the photo. This is the last year that the Vulcan will be flying and in fact today it flew over Woodford where all the Vulcans were built, unfortunately I couldn't make it to see it again, but it was impressive at Cholmondeley and I'm sure it was impressive today. What I did find out at Cholmondeley was that they user the sam Olympus engine as the Concorde, that's something for a pub quiz.

Letting Sleeping Pigs Lie
Letting Sleeping Pigs Lie (Pentax Optio 50)

Back in Cholmondeley Castle in the rare breeds section. Here we Gloucester Black Spots having a kip after a hard days snuffling and all this walking and the two pints of Strongbow were making me feel like the same though I'm not sure I'd be comfortable as they were. Shortly after the picture was taken one of them decided that he could be more comfortable getting between two of them and he would have been right if they were happy with this proposal which they were not, at which point squealing started and a rumpus began. The main one in the picture was barely behind the fence with it's little body poking through the wire and you could imagine a short sleepy roll could find it on the wrong side and freedom.

Temple Garden in Cholmondeley Castle
Temple Garden in Cholmondeley Castle (Pentax Optio 50)

On an aborted trip to Beeston Castle we found a different Beeston Castle, a pub. Don't get me wrong we did get to Beeston Castle but when we got there my Wife decided that we didn't really want to go there because of the weather, so to the pub it was. A sound idea at the time because of hunger but after two pints of Strongbow my mind was either on a third or a good sleep. Neither being an option we went to Cholmondeley Castle which isn't a castle you can walk around but gardens that you can.

The statue is a small statue at the end of a small lake in the Temple Gardens, a neatly laid out garden slightly reminiscent of the Oriental Gardens in Telford with Carp occasionally coming to the surface with a slurping sound to scoop up some food. These gardens aren't named after a company this time and don't have a million things all in one place making it looked cluttered. The sun put in an appearance every so often that helped.
