Can't imagine how I managed to miss last week's "Celebration" theme, but somehow my links didn't work.   So I hastily got out my camera phone while I was in town, and took a couple of roadside pics.   Not too sure about this camera yet, and the weather was distinctly unphotogenic, but here they are.

Looking down on a back road and the exit from a car park.   Yes, those are setts in the road, and I judder over them every time!

Not much side of the road to be seen here.   Workers in the town park in these little streets, and then walk into town to where they work.   So the cars stay here all day.   And anyone driving down here has difficulty should they meet an oncoming car/van/lorry.    The cars drive away at the end of the working day and are replaced by the cars of the people who live in the houses on the right.   They open directly onto the street, and have no parking space.   Roadsides are very valuable round these ways!

Go to this link to see what bedecks the roadsides of other towns.    And post some of your own.

Here we drive on the parkway, and park in the driveway.

Car park makes a lot more sense!

I have never heard of the term setts for a road surface like that. I'd expect to see badgers in/near their setts.
