My first attempt at embedding a video in a blog post using open Live Writer. Please let me know if it doesn't work. I read Google News daily and the video is about a UFO that crash landed in America.
I went for a walked around the Tring reservoirs and was rather surprised to see the water level in Startopsend was very low for this time of year and after subsequently looking at the level in the others I suspect this isn't due to low winter rainfall. The route brought me out at the far end of the watered portion of the Wendover Canal. On the way back along the towpath I came upon a factory with some large silios. Despite it being after 6pm at Easter the factory was operating.
Heygates have been growing grain in Northamptonshire since 1562. They subsequently expanded into milling and now own four mills and two bakeries. They purchased this mill in 1944.
I eventually arrived at Bulbourne Junction to see Bates Dry Dock was in operation.
By now it was raining and I didn't have a coat. Oh well, skin is mostly waterproof!
