I've not been able to get on line at all for the last two weeks as my internet went down and my provider Talk Talk couldn't resolve the issue for about 18 days. My family have been banging on about changing over to BT, so I rang them hoping that if I swapped I'd get back on line quicker than Talk Talk would be able to send and engineer and fix the problem. Nope, post Brexit it seems we're much closer to The Abyss than I thought and it's going to take BT 3 weeks to get me on-line and I'm a new customer!!!
Tonight my neighbour has given me his Wi-Fi pass code and I'm on for a short while, but I should be up and running again with BT on the 23rd of Sept.
Missed out on two of the final games of the season as I've been up to Derbyshire to celebrate my nieces birthday. While I was up there I managed to shoot another batch of images for my Pavilion typology. One of the main ones that I was hoping to shoot was Risley CC and the research seemed pretty straight forward and I thought it would have been the easiest to find. In the end I had to give up on it at the first attempt to locate it as I couldn't find it and the locals - one of whom said "I've lived here 13 years mate, there's no cricket pitch here in Risley". As we stood unbeknown to both of us 30 metres from the entrance to the track to the pitch. The thing I hadn't made a note of was that it was set back some distance from the main road - 1/2 a mile or so along the track.
Having gave up with the light failing and three locals all claiming to never heard of the club I returned home to check Google maps again. In the end having noticed the pitch backed onto the A52, I stopped on the way home in a layby adjacent to the pitch and scrambled through some bushes and up a bank and came in via the backdoor as such. Well worth it though.
