Snibston Discovery Park 9/10

My Camera Club had the run of the outside area at Snibston Discovery Park, Coalville, particularly the old coalmine area, closed in 1983, having been opened in 1832, for a shoot one evening recently.

Above the door of the old barn I featured yesterday is the original sign that came with it.  It is interesting to note that not only will Mr.Moody look after all your requirements while you are still alive but he will also look after you when you make that final journey we will all make at some time.

The multi-talented Mr Moody...love it!
Brian Walbey: Jack-of-all-trades Ray but did he master them all, we shall never know.

It was often the case, Brian. My great granddad had a joinery and and an undertaking firm; the undertaking took over in the end. Alas my father did not inherit the business as his mother thought there was no future in undertaking! A strange women...

1742 it says; incredible.
Brian Walbey: Just think you could have been a pall-bearer Alan instead of working at the Mad-house smile

Nice shot Brian and i picked right up on the "Undertaker" on the sign....but i think that Mr Moody wasn't that good of a joiner judging by the slits in the sign.....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Peter. Yes I thought that about the sign also.

I'm sure he would be pleased to know that his name & building are to live for perpetuity Briab
Brian Walbey: Yes I'm sure he would be very pleased Chris.
A veritable `jack-of-all-trades`! Lovely capture. (:o)
Brian Walbey: Thanks Rosalyn, but did he manage to master all those trades, we shall never know.

His name has to be Jack.Great colour and texture
Brian Walbey: Thanks vintage.
What a clever man Mr. Moody was, to be the undertaker and and make the coffins, and the wagons on which to move them. Then to paint the houses inside and out when the "one left behind" fancied a change.
Yes, he almost had the village sewn up.
Brian Walbey: A veritable one-man band Sheila.
He must have been a very busy man. I like how the date is set in the bricks.
Brian Walbey: You have very keen eye sight Linda, I never noticed that about the date.

Handy guy to have a pint with jack of all trades
Brian Walbey: He was probably one of those "I know a bloke" type of blokes Scotia only he was the blok if you get my drift.
Such character in that brick and wood work, Mr. moody must have been a busy and I would guess a well off man. Well spotted Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks gGorge, he certainly should have been a very busy man.
Love this Brian, all the ingredients are great, especially that sign. The brickwork says 1742 so this is much older than the other buildings.
Brian Walbey: Yes it is John and much more attractive than the modern museum building.
The brickwork seems to say it was built in 1742 - so it's even older than you are, Brian smile
Brian Walbey: Just a few years older Tom smile
A man of many talents!
Brian Walbey: I guess you mean Mr.Moody Bill not me.
Ah yes..A man of many talents Brian.,,Love the textures and detail.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ron.
gets all his supplies from the co-op, great shot
Brian Walbey: Thanks Derek.
D.C, Moody was obviously a man of many talents and skills. Let's hope though that the sign looked a bit better when it was new.

(I thought there was something special about the colours, then I spotted that you're using an E-300.)
Brian Walbey: Well I have used the Topaz plug-in on this series Ellie and it has lifted the colours and given a very slight HDR effect.
Brian, the painted number 1742, was that the year it was build? I love the picture.
Brian Walbey: I guess it was built in 1742 Sue. Thanks for your comment.
