The Ministry of Works

The Ministry of Works

The Trinity House

The Trinity House

The general lighthouse authority for England, Wales and the Channel Islands. A deep sea pilotage authority and also administers charitable funds mostly connected with seafarers.

As seen in London, a stone’s throw from Tower Bridge.

From the sea to the land beyond

This is the best thing I’ve seen on TV for a long time: a documentary of the British coastline (both on- and off-shore), soundtracked almost exclusively by re-arrangements of British Sea Power songs.

Gentle, fascinating, touching, and (towards the very end, in something close to modern-day Blackpool) mildly profane.

Just beautiful, and absolutely essential watching.

Images of Whitby (1/2)

Or rather, More Images of Whitby. These from a recent holiday in the area.

As seen from the North Sea

Entering the harbour (no dead captain tied to the wheel of this vessel)

Weather-beaten

The sun shining on the righteous
