Gareth's 365/15 Photo Project

As a few OTG members who are also my Facebook friends will already know a friend of mine invited me to join him on a 365 Photo project for 2015. The objective is to post a photo a day for the whole year. However, I did not begin my photo project until the 6th of January.

For those of you who have a Facebook account here is the link to my : 365/15 album  and for the rest of you, well, the photos are posted below:

Inspired by the 1 photo a day project being done by my friends, I have decide to undertake the project for myself.

I am going to endeavour to take and post in this album at least 1 photo per day from 6th Jan 15 until 31st Dec 15. It will be an eclectic mix of photographs taken of things that catch my eye, I like or I think look good, and will probably cover a multitude subjects and objects............. it's gonna be interesting folks!


January 15:

Cat in the wall in a refurbished section of the Cloisters at Norwich Cathedral. In days long passed in East Anglia it was traditional to wall up a live cat when a building was constructed.

There are many examples of long dead and now desiccated and mummified cats being found during demolition or renovation work on old houses across Norfolk & Suffolk. I guess that this method is the modern and humane way of continuing that tradition.

The Coslany Bridge again, but this photo has been posted for another reason other than just repeating myself.

Do you know what the red spout is for on the right hand side? I can tell you that all of the Victorian & Edwardian cast iron bridges in Norwich feature them: The Barnards, Bishop & Barnards bridge on St Crispins way, Coslany bridge, Blackfiars bridge next to the NUCA and Playhouse and the Foundry bridge at the bottom of Prince of Wales road, and even the Dukes Palace bridge that was removed as a river crossing and is now the barrier of the view point over looking the city from the Castle Mall Gardens. The cast iron bridge railings along with the spout are now positioned directly over the entrance to the castle mall car park, and yet I would wager that very few people even notice it.

All of the spouts are the same shape and size, all of them are on the right hand side, upstream side of the bridge, and I know what they are for; but do you?

Gareth I've checked your Facebook page, and I'm intrigued to known what the 'Red Spouts' were used for.

Before I answer that I am going to give you all 48 hours to guess what the real purpose of those spouts is.

Here are 3 facts about the spouts:

1) The spouts are all made from cast iron and all are the same size..... and are probably made off the same casting moulds.

2)The spouts only feature on the cast iron road bridges in the city which were located in the centres of Victorian industry,

3) The spouts are all located on the right hand side, up steam side of the river. Note; boats navigate on the right of our rivers and waterways and not on the left as we drive our cars.

Over to you guys to guess away to your hearts content, and on Sunday evening I will reveal the correct answer.
Yorkshire Geordie

I know what they're for.  

Woodsmoke gave the correct answer before and I can remember his answer from way back then.

To make it more interesting for the rest I'm sayin' nowt   now.

OK, a brief recap.

The spouts are mounted on each of the Victorian cast iron Bridges in the city.
The spouts are on the right hand, up stream side of the bridges.







But they are not for draining rain water away from the road surface of the bridges, as can be seen from the open cast iron lattice type work;




So before you reveal the answer, have a guess or two:


Spoiler:

They were for leather hoses used to suck up water for the Victorian steam powered fire appliances. By feeding them through the hole in the bridge and being supported by the spout, they helped to prevent kinking and thus water starvation to the appliance pump. They are located on the upstream side of the bridge to prevent kinking where the hose reaches the level of the flowing water in the river; the spout allows the hose to sit in a large half circle arc, where as if they were dropped into the river on the downstream side of the bridge the hose would immediately kink upon entering the water.

Yorkshire Geordie

"And not a lot of people knew that." - as Peter Sellars (almost) said, but Michael Caine got blamed for saying!

Thanks, Gareth.  
The question was asked in 2012 and answered by Woodsmoke.

The wooden Pews in the transept of Norwich Cathedral. I like the way they slot together so they can be placed individually or in a run of several, and it is a system similar to the one I use for fixing flower boxes in place on walls and fences. I would like to employ this set up in one of my reclaimed pallet wood garden bench and chair projects this year.

The Gasometer on Gas Hill Norwich.

All of the gasometers across the country are scheduled for dismantling and demolishing over the next couple of years. Personally I think that they should all be sand blasted back to bare metal, repainted and turned into Not For Profit travel/ backpackers hostels, with built in bars and music/function venues, and roof garden view points over looking their surrounding areas.

Thank you for doing this, Gareth. You have some very interesting photos and although your trivia question (re: the spout) had its day on OTG previously, I wasn't a member at the time, so thank you for the 'spoiler' too ... It didn't 'spoil' anything though.... I would never have guessed on my own!

Gareth, thanks for the answer to the spout question,

The gym equipment in Pilling Park. I think that it was a rather good idea of Norwich City Council to install gym equipment about 6 months ago for all to use for free in the park. This kit is about 150 metres from where I live, and recently I have begun using it 5 times a week. It is really helping me to shed some of the additional weight I put on while being so ill last year.

The flight of Polywood steps in Lionwood: there are 72 of them in this flight and I walk up them with Oz at least once each day. Polywood is made from recycled plastics: carrier bags, disposable coffee cups, shampoo bottles. etc. and is mixed with chips from MDF and other man-made boards. I think they are great because they, and other things made from Polywood will out last me by many years..

Blackthorn in bloom by the River Wensum just before sunset at the Bishops Bridge. That is actually one of my favourite fishing spots, and it is not really that difficult to access. Can you see the "H" in the brick work just to the left of the Blackthorn? that is two flights of steps down from the road above, and then continuing to the left there is a hidden (from this view) 6-8 feet wide paved footpath that is about 2 feet below the level of the greenery and soil of the river bank... if you look carefully you can make out the row of fence posts running alongside the path. The tree 2nd from the left in this photo is also the tree that I fell out of 7 years ago resulting in me dislocating my knee (again!). http://overthegate.myfreeforum.org/about6060

Quayside on the River Wensum in Norwich. This area has been a quay since Medieval times and possibly longer. Nowadays it is a fashionable and sought after residential area, and these metal banded pieces of wood representing boxes and bales of goods either recently unloaded, or about to be loaded on to Wherries or other shallow draft vessels are the only reminder of times long passed.

Movie Monday in Caley's Cocoa Cafe
Keith ("the Beehive") and I, and if Lois' day off coincides have tea and cake at Caley's cafe and watch old movie reels graciously provided by Norwich Heart. I walked in today just after 3.15pm and lo and behold what do I see projected on to the wall, but an old movie reel of an unmanned, manually operated, hand cranked, chain ferry crossing the river.... this is something that I have recently been campaigning for; a free to use on demand unmanned, manually operated chain ferry, and the powers that be said that a chain ferry would be completely unsuitable..... but only because two rival commercial fare paying ferry services were approved, licensed, and have now set up. An adult fare is £3.00 per person one way across the river.... Well, it is actually cheaper to drive around and park up at the pay and display than it is to buy one adult ticket, let alone the cost of a family crossing ticket!

This how we should be able to cross the river from Thorpe St Andrew to Whittlingham country park By a Chain Ferry

The Royal on Bank Plain in the foreground and the castle in the back ground. Can you see the car on the left hand side in front of the old prison wall at the castle? That is the position from where I took the photo of Britannia barracks and Cafe Britannia on 31/03/2015. So it was only right that this photo was taken with me leaning on the railings at Britannia café.

Guerilla Gardening today.
I have 300g of Poppy Seeds and 50g of Wild flower seeds to sow. I have chosen 4 locations all of which are within easy foraging distance for my Bees. This is part of my WW1 centenary tribute, and hopefully there will be an excellent germination rate that will give a really good showing.

This is what was the Victorian Duke's Palace bridge that spanned the River Wensum at Duke Street Norwich. It is now one of the view points of the castle gardens over looking the city of Norwich. It is also directly over the entrance to the castle mall car park, but it has actually been re-assembled incorrectly and apparently I am the only person who thinks that..... no-one else seems to be able to see the mistake ............... can you spot the error in the architecture?

The Crooked Spire of Chesterfield: "In common folklore, there are numerous explanations as to why the spire is twisted. One well established legend goes that a virgin once married in the church, and the church was so surprised that the spire turned around to look at the bride, and continues that if another virgin marries in the church, the spire will return to true again."

Stalagmites and Stalactites in Treak Cliff Cavern, Castleton Derbyshire. I first saw this formation on a school trip as a 12 year old, some 41 years ago and in the great scheme of things there has been about a 0.010" of closing in the gap between the stalactite and stalagmite in the centre of this photo during that time, and in about another 5000 years or so they just may touch.

The puppy sculpture in Chesterfield's Theatre Yard (once known as “the kennels”) designed by Geoff Woods from Working pArts. It is solid glass, and the skill in the actual moulding to start with is excellent, but the real skill was in the cooling of such a large piece of glass as there are only a couple of minor flaws visible.

If you are going to write graffiti upon a wall, then let it be a whole book!

This building has been scheduled for demolition to make way for a new residential development and in the summer of 2006 an artist undertook the project of copying out Eutopia by Thomas Moore on to these walls. In a few weeks time this building will have been demolished under the Norwich City Council 10 year rule. If a building has remained empty or site un-developed for 10 years  then the council issue a compulsory purchase order to the value of the property of 10 years ago, and then go ahead and redevelop the site themselves... and this system works!

1st of June to 16th of June 2015

Newly Hatched Cygnets.
The swans decided to nest on a low lying section of built up silt bank not far off the city centre and in a very popular pedestrian area. A higher than normal spring tide could have easily washed the nest and eggs away. There was not signs of any cygnets on Sunday afternoon, with the Penn firmly sat on the nest, and the Cobb in a mean mood patrolling up and down the river for about 20 metres in either direction. Yesterday afternoon at about 4.30pm there were these 4 hatchlings visible, and It took me 20 minutes or so of waiting to get this photo, and I am absolutely certain the Cygnets have not been on the water yet.

This little Blue Tit fledged from the nest in our Leylandii hedge this afternoon, and I was privileged to see its first flight and first successful landing on the twig it used for a perch. Mum & Dad were a little apprehensive of my presence, but did feed him a juicy caterpillar and what looked like some tiny greenish snails while I watched. Alas, the feeding was just a little too quick for me to capture on camera.

As far as I am aware my two photos are the only publicly available photos of this model train in place.

Subject: 75th anniversery ww2 bombing Carrow hill

The following message was submitted on the Norwich Evening News website by Gareth Lewis, telephone: 07758786036, email: cargo-cycles@live.co.uk
Thursday 9th of July 2015 marks the 75th anniversary of the first civilian victims of the WW2 bombing raids on Norwich.

09/07/40, 5 victims: Maud Balaam (40), Maud Burrel (37), Bertha Playford (19), Gladys Sampson (18) and Bessie Upton (36) all killed by a bomb on Carrow Hill (adjacent to the tower remains) while they were all on their way to work at the Coleman's factory. There is a green plaque on the wall of the old school on Carrow Hill commemorating this event. 75 years on I think that those who perished in the war while doing war work should also be remembered alongside the service men & women who laid down their lives.

many thanks for looking

Gareth

St Mary's on St Mary's Plain, Coslany, Norwich. I love this church for its architecture, an original 8th century Saxon round tower and mish-mash of other styles including a few little contemporary modern bits. I am told the inside of this church is magnificent, but the Central Baptist Church (across the road) who hold the lease do not permit visitors.

The Edith Cavell memorial restoration and improvements outside the Erpingham Gate of the Cathedral close. This is a £50k addition to the already way over budget (circa £3m over budget) improvements to the Tombland area, The trees and shrubs have gone, and especially the large mature Fig tree that always gave a good harvest of ripe figs at this time of year. Some how I very much doubt that the work will be completed before the 100th Anniversary of the Execution of Edith Cavell on the 12th of October.

Well, here's 3 of them; L-R, Record 52½E quick release carpenters vice, a Record 92½ pipe vice, and a Record 84 quick release fitters vice.

My pocket may be £30 lighter now, but my new bench when I build it will be about 75kg heavier.

I keep seeing lamps across the city and cannot help myself, I just have to keep taking photos of them.

This one is above the gates of the Quaker Friends Meeting House on Upper Goat Lane.
2015 a photo a day project, 29/12/2015 — at Upper Goat Lane.





What can I say, I still have a thing about the lamps across the city, and so I ended up taking a couple of snaps of the police lamp with the Norwich coat arms displayed upon it above the front of the Bethel Street Police Station. In my opinion it is a rather splendid lamp, and I particularly like the simplistic but almost over indulgence of the supporting bracket work

2015 a photo a day project, 30/12/2015 — at Bethel Street Police Station.




Well, I have really enjoyed doing " Gareth's 365/15 photo a day" project. I do so hope you have enjoyed looking at them, and seeing what I see.
And so I close this project and this album with a photo I took this afternoon of the Peace Obelisk in Chapelfield Gardens here in Norwich.
So happy New Year to each and every one of you, and " May Peace Prevail On Earth."

2015 a photo a day project, 31/12/2015 — at Chapelfield Gardens.




I really enjoyed doing my 365/15 project, so much so that I have decided to run with it for a second year.

So, if you have a Facebook account and you would like to keep up to date on a daily or an as you please ad-hoc basis please click on the following link to view Gareth's 366/16 Photo a day Project.
