Another perfect candidate for the Pickled Egg Library...

For the "Bricks with maker's name on" lover. There's plenty round here as my submission for POTD today testifies. North-East Collieries all had their local brickworks making use of the fireclay deposited along with the coal seams, and proudly stamped their names on their bricks.

But the North-East by no means has the monopoly on these reminders of times gone by. This website covers all the UK.....fascinating if like me you like a bit of industrial history.

Calling all F1 followers

I thoroughly recommend "How to build a car" by Adrian Newey ISBN 978-0-00-819680-6 published by HarperCollins.
390 pages of absorbing information, tho admittedly the odd highly technical passage can get you confused, which any true F1 fan will find fascinating.

Probably best read before too many bevvies! :-D

P.E.Library-Fair Wear and Tear

Dry as Sticks....probably but if you are PCP, PCH, PLP or whatever they call "renting an new car for a few years" here's the industry standard, for that end of lease/hire period fair wear and tear assessment.....
