    "Coburg", you say?

    I wonder if the names of the small Wharfs begin with a 'D'?

    I'm going to ask a dumb question about this pic of the day - why is the water spurting out here ? and does it spurt out constantly or just at certain times ? Sorry if I sound thick is it to do with the low tide ?

    one for Waterways ?

    I assume is is to keep the mud moist. That is the Brunswick river lock which faces southish. In hot weather it could dry out being directly in line with the sun. If it is allowed to go hard it would build up with the next layer washed in on the tide, and require expensive dredging.

    Nice pic, Steve. A quick search and wikipedia gave this answer

    Rapeseed (Brassica napus), also known as rape, oilseed rape, rapa, rappi, rapaseed and (in the case of one particular group of cultivars, canola) is a bright yellow flowering member of the family Brassicaceae (mustard or cabbage family). The name derives from the Latin for turnip, rāpum or rāpa, and is first recorded in English at the end of the 14th century.

    ...past that stone every day going to Quarry Bank, and when you walk it marked the short cut behind the Greenhills...

    The link doesn't work though....

    Thanks, AZ. I believe I have fixed the link. I similarly cycled past the stone on my way to Quarry Bank. I can remember being caught late by the Deputy Head sneaking into the door at Quarry, and being told, "George, you're slow enough to catch a cold!" -- and that I would never amount to anything if I wasn't punctual.
