    I see what you mean when you said the footbridge moved around a bit.

    'Barbie' did get in on the act, of course, yesterday, as below. But this shot only really works well in the morning when the sun is on the upside of the line. Robin [ATTACH]

    Well, don't pull those signals off slowly otherwise the drivers will be waiting at Stogumber so the passengers can pinch your strawberries!

    Must be a generational thing, 'cos I thought it looked like an Imperial Walker from Star Wars.... Robin

    The water tower looks like something out of H G Wells War of the Worlds. None too stable either.

    A very interesting couple of photos, I didn't know Williton had had such a large water tower.

    Haven't we all "but". A T.V. antiques presenter of vast experience in the trade brought along a supposed Irish silver caddy spoon to his show as an awful warning. The faker had not quite got the hallmarks right but sufficiently well to deceive...

    I did say 'hard' not 'impossible' to fake, but I am also satisfied as to the provenance of the plate. You give sage advice about clocks - I helped a friend spot a fake a while ago. I don't think it was intended to deceive - someone had (very...
