Scavenger Photo Hunt - April

Words for this month's Scavenger Photo Hunt organised by Kate at 'I Live, I Love, I Craft' blog are - Edge, Loaf, Bridge, Mine, Black and My Own Choice

Edge - The Crags Edge Cafe at the Creswell Crags Visitor Centre was quite busy when we had tea and cake in the afternoon there recently.


The Edge Cafe above

Loaf - Freshly baked loaves just out of the oven and cooling on the tray.


Bridge - at the new Visitor Centre at Sherwood Forest a sculpture which shows the fight on the bridge between Robin Hood and Little John.

Mine - the first museum I worked in was in a town in the coal mining area of Nottinghamshire and we had lots of fossils like the one above on display.  This
Lepidodendron fossil which is on display in Mr Bateman's geological gallery at Biddulph Grange is from a tree also known as a scale tree.  They were part of the coal forest flora.

Black - I thought the delicate tracery of the wrought iron in this bowl shaped pulpit which we saw at St Werburgh's church in Derby looked wonderful in the sunlight streaming through the windows.

My Own Choice - I thought these were fun - 'The Red Barrows' in formation outside the shop and reception area at Newark Air Museum.

  2. Great choices Rosie. The bread looks delicious - you can't beat a freshly made loaf :) The sculpture at Sherwood Forest is interesting and the wrought iron pulpit is so unusual have never seen anything like that before. The fossil is brilliant - I really must return to Biddulph Grange :)

    1. Thank you RR, the bread was lovely toasted. The sculptures that were in the forest are now dotted around the centre and village - we spotted Robin and Marion close to the Co-op in the village. The geology gallery at Biddulph is almost complete, just a couple of fossils or replicas to place in the empty spaces plus some of the stone layers. It is looking very impressive. The church in Derby was fascinating we were with friends and had been to the Museum to see a couple of exhibitions one of which carried on in the church. I'd never been in before and only had my little camera with me but managed to take one or two photos:)

    1. Thank you WoW, the pulipt was very intricate and light and airy unlike the wooden ones in other churches. The bread was lovely both toasted or with cheese:)

  5. Nice-looking visitor centre, but even better looking bread. I rather like the idea of that bowl-shaped pulpit; the vicar would look very like a missionary being boiled alive by cannibals!

    1. Thank you John, ha ha - yes the pulpit is cauldron shaped isn't it? The visitor centre is fascinating but very busy when we visited as the children were off school and it's a great place for them to visit:)

  9. Lovely photos Rosie, but the bridge & your own choice really stood out for me. We have a squadron based here in Victoria, which I think are the red arrows too & they flew across over us not long ago for the Formula 1 race in Melbourne. Quite a noise, though we nearly missed them as the noise comes after they've gone (giggle). Loved the unusual pulpit too. Thanks for sharing, take care & have a great weekend.

    1. Thank you Susan, we saw the red arrows once pass over close by, we were driving to a nature reserve at the time and looking in the sky for buzzards and all of a sudden there they were. Hope you had a super weekend:)

  14. Well done for all the pictures. The wrought iron at St Werburgh's is quite stunning, and I do like the Red Barrows - that's my sort of daft humour :-)

  18. I think if I were to preach I'd feel a bit silly standing in the bowl pulpit. What an extraordinary thing. Red Barrows - someone has had fun with that idea.

    1. Thank you Lucy, yes it is unusual. John, in his comment above likened it to a cauldron, it would seem to me like being in a hanging basket perhpas? The red barrows are a great idea:)
