Its about 5 miles if you go the pretty way. I was keen to deliver a big bag or dead ballpoint pens to the Green Centre where Manor Road meets manor Hill. Melanie there told me she has a market for dead ballpoint pens and we seem to collect lots.
On the way up Pankhurst Avenue I spotted an extension on a house that had an interesting first floor door.
Then on to Lidl where the bargain red wine was not as good as the £5 bottles at Sainsburys, but the butter, cheese and German lager were all excellent value. On the way home I called at Brighton College, the big private school in Kemptown, to see if the new sundial on the newly built tower is visible yet. Perhaps I don’t have to say its a fee-paying private school, no other Brighton based school is building a tower and fitting a sundial. Just a little more evidence of the growing disparity of wealth and income under the ConDems.
But I was pleased to see that the dial was showing the correct time because Jackie Jones did the maths for it.
On Queens Park Road I spotted a hand-built extension to a house which included a washing machine door as a window – you don’t see that every day.
