Tuesday’s Midland Musings From Jane
Hi all, I thought I,d explain, for those who don’t know, the workings of the Southwold Pier clock, that Karen's son was seen standing before. The clock strikes on the hour and half hour. It starts with the two figures in the tin bath at the top sitting up, subsequently the bath overflows filling up the toilet on the next level down. The two gentlemen on the next level proceed to drop their shorts and aim into the toilet placed between them, naturally kids, (of all ages) love that bit! Finally the trough at the bottom fills with water and the flowers rise up. Forgive me if the sequence is wrong only we haven’t watched it for some time. In addition there is an alternative amusements arcade called " The Under the Pier Show" , which includes such wonderful delights as " Rent a dog", "The Bathyscape" and "Beat the Banker" These fabulous creations are the inventions of the superb Tim Hunkin. Can’t wait till October for our next visit! Jane xxx
sun, sun glorious sun!
Thank you Jane Southwold sounds just delightful a real Victorian seaside town that has retained all the old traditions. Do take some more photos when you visit in October.
