These are the railings at Somerset County Council.
The dragon or Wyvern or whatever it is is quite prominent in the council & pops up in all sorts of places around here. I think it's worth a Google (or any of the other search engines).
Ok, so it isn't a Wyvern - apparently they only have two legs...
So is it a Wyrm? It sort of fits the bill I guess. In any case its some sort of Dragon eh!? I am sure someone will tell me...

Paignton Zoo

I had a trip to Paignton Zoo today, about an hours drive but worth it I reckon.
LOTS of Pea Fowl... the climate on the English Riviera must suit them!

Taunton Heritage Trail

Do you know I still haven't walked this trail! I think I must have covered the points of interest, just not necessarily in the same order! This is what the Town Centre website says about it.

The Crescent

A fine row of old houses, now used as offices, hair dressing salons & clinics.
The office I am working in this coming week is just behind these buildings.

Coffee on the Estate...

Another shot from Dillington House.

I don't know what someone was doing walking up the drive with a coffee but I am pretty sure that this is not what the architects had in mind for the pillar!

Dillington House

Sadly it was my last day at Dillington House today, back to HQ tomorrow then down to Exchange House in Taunton from next Tuesday for a few days. Hopefully by then the new offices in Quantock House will have been fitted out & we will have desks & computers. There is even rumoured to be a kettle on the way!
I'll believe it when I see it...

You Could Not Make It Up II!

It's me, I'm back...

After moving closer to my work so I don't have to drive the 40 miles a day from Taunton to Portishead I have now been seconded to a post in... Taunton! So I have my commute back, but the upside is that I will be in Taunton a couple of times a week at least so I can resurrect this DPB.

Today I have been near Illminster at a fantastic location, Dillington House , as it is not exactly Taunton I am stretching it a little by posting a close up of a steel sculpture I found in the grounds, just opposite the stables & pheasantry if you go looking for it!
