This picture has got my attention, Brian.

It seems like you already have a full calendar for your blog for 2017?
Brian Walbey: This is one very small part of a very large open air museum showing life back in the old days. My firsts set of postings from here comes up early in the new year. I'm currently working on all my postings for something like the first 5 - 6 months of 2017, (I take a lot of photos), although I won't actually upload them as yet because i can chop and change as different images turn up in that time.
Ah that's great, Brian!
Brian Walbey: The whole museum covers a massive area with this coal mine, (a proper one), a farm, two villages, a small steam railway and a tramcar linking them all together. This map doesn't really give any idea of the scale http://www.beamish.org.uk/plan-your-visit/interactive-map/
This looks an interesting place, Brian, never been, but who knows?
Brian Walbey: We've wanted to go for a long time which is why we went on a coach holiday to the area in June, it is a long way for Maureen to drive these days, although just to make you envious we booked a cottage in Ambleside yesterday for a week there next July smile
That one looks like a dandy, Brian.
Brian Walbey: It is a very much bigger version of the Black Country Museum Ginnie, this map shows you the layout but no sense of the scale http://www.beamish.org.uk/plan-your-visit/interactive-map/

This will be interesting. Another place for me to visit one day..
Brian Walbey: Well worth a visit Chris, we went on a coach holiday, too far for Maureen to drive these days.

I will look forward to this, Brian
Brian Walbey: We'd wanted to go for ages and went on a coach holiday in June to Co.Durham which included a day's visit to Beamish. In truth there is so much to see over a very large area 2-3 days would be better.

This one promises to be interesting. Looking forward.

A long legged building.
Brian Walbey: There are rail tracks underneath so the wagons could be loaded from the hoppers in the buildings above.
I will enjoy seeing Beamish as it is many years since we were there
Brian Walbey: No doubt it will have changed a lot, they seem to be adding bits all the time from what I could gather.
this reminds me very much of Blits Hill in Ironbridge that i visited with Bill in 2014...
we had dinner with you and Maureen in Ironbridge one of the nights... it's fun to bring back these memories....petersmile
Brian Walbey: It is just like Blists Hill but on a much larger scale http://www.beamish.org.uk/plan-your-visit/interactive-map/
yes I remember our evening together, a very enjoyable one despite our difficulty in finding the way there smile
I thought I recognized it - I had a similar shot some time back - http://tomwilson.shutterchance.com/image/2011/06/17/beamish-living-museum--the-pit/
Brian Walbey: Got to admit I prefer your image to mine Tom, I like the presentation.
