Back in March just after we had the snow my son had problems getting to work I Oxford so I dropped him off so he did not loose out on his pay. I had read about a Blue plaque and I wanted to go and get a photo of it as it meant a lot too me.
This is the old Oxford Instruments building, back in 1972 I walked through the door you see for the first time. I had finished my apprenticeship the weekend before and was starting a new job
This looks down the side, just you can see an entrance which used to be the loading bay, the building behind was not there but a few outbuildings and a Boathouse which is where OI started life on this plot of ground before expanding to become the one of the biggest manufacturers of Superconducting Magnets.
Llynheilyn lake is just off the A44 at Fforest Inn and you drive right past going towards Hundred House We stopped off quickly to let the dogs have a quick break before we reached the campsite a little further along
The lake with the surrounding hills still with snow on
I always thought the lake flooded across the road
But it's marked on the map as a ford
and runs away as a stream with a temporary snow bridge across it nearby
The lake usually has a lot of wild fowl on it though there were few around when we stopped off
