And again...

Perhaps I should have posted this one first! Wasn't much of a band with only one Mandolin was it!

Band on North Street

I wish I had some time to stand and listen to this band who set up in Taunton on Saturday. I heard the first tune which sounded something like The Pogues or Flogging Molly might have done. Sort of Irish or at least a little celtic... Anyway I didn't - I had to rush off - so if you know who they were drop me a line!

Back to the Old School

Unfortunately I haven't actually been back to the school yet, I took this at the same time!
This is the front door, on Mary Street.

Taunton Baptist Church

Not a religious man at all really, except in extremis! Always good to hedge your bets I reckon!
Anyway, the sun streaming from behind the Baptist Church was worth a click I thought.

Back to the chimneys

Nothing special about the chimney on this house taken near Jellalabad but I love the colour of the sky - makes me hopeful for the coming summer!

Jellalabad Tower

The main tower at Jellalabad Barracks, I don't know the reason behind the slit windows - surely by the time this was built there was no defensive reason to build them this way? One thing is for sure - they wouldn't let much light into the building. British Barracks have a long and distinguished history of being uncomfortable - I stayed in accommodation in Dorset that had been condemned, 8 men to a room with a metal frame bed and a metal locker - comfortable is not a word that springs to mind. By contrast our barracks in Hildesheim, Germany was an old Luftwaffe Kaserne - the rooms were smaller and more comfortable.

Old School House

How frustrating! I can't work out the writing on this gate!
When I took the shot I thought it said Orange Street Infant School, now I am not too sure. Looking on the map I can't find a street anywhere near beginning with 'O'...
A mystery - for now any Taunton locals able to help?

Multi-Storey Revisited

Back on the multi-storey, this time looking down over East Street and WHSmith, over to St James Church and the Somerset County Cricket Club and out onto the Quantocks.

Near the entrance to Jellalabad Barracks, almost in the entrance in fact.

I wonder how far that roller has been pushed in it's lifetime?

Taunton Town Charity

Taunton Town Charity on Magdalene Street.

A building that deserves a better photographer than me but hey, I'm all you have!

Anything that provides good, affordable housing for the oldsters has got to be a good thing in my book, just waiting for the good affordable housing for us (relative) youngsters now!
