A Crane in Wallingford

Happened to go into Wallingford with my wife the other Friday and the first thing I saw was a crane jib jutting above the buildings 

Well what can I say other than I had to go and check it out

Walked passed Rides on Air, you might have noticed their Van on Midsummer Murders

The crane was working on Pettits refurbishment
Lifting the new steelwork which needed fitting to the building

The road was closed all the way down for cars but you could still walk along there
Certainly stood out in he town

Back in the town I noticed a new shop called busy brush which I think is a restaurant where you can go for a coffee

Going back to the car we passed the green tree  a pub I have been in a few time when I was younger.
Hope you enjoyed my short visit.


  1. Fascinating photos with the crane, construction and lovely buildings ~

    Happy Week to you ~ ^_^

  2. Here they'll close down a street for a big crane like that if they have to lift something to the top of an office building. They'll do so on the weekend to minimize disruption.

  3. Cranes are always fun to watch! :)

  4. I'm going to watch for that van on Midsummer Murders.

  5. You had me there for a minute: I was expecting a bird, and wondered how it got there :-)
    Yes, I also thought MM. Do they still film it there? With that new chap, I mean?
