My final contribution to Middlesex has to be referring back to Neil's visit to an England international at the beginning of this county. But I am looking at the development of England's national stadium over the years: :-D

How it used to be:

Early strike in Fife's day in the spotlight, well 10 minutes late, for the 10 o'clock bongs. How many Fifers know that St Salvatore's Chapel in St Andrews has a red clock face. Very few I would guess.

Or that St Andrews as well as being the home of golf, is also the home of minutiae and trivia. Pick your manhole...

St Andrews in Fife undoubtedly comes into the category of nice places to stop off at and not just because it has a church with a red clock as featured on Pictures of the Day Clock Special!

Researching the "Clock", I came across this site which really goes to town in recording the overlooked but to me fascinating minutiae of St Andrews. Here's some of the elements it covers and each has its own set of images...
Anyone tempted by knockers or manholes :?: :-D
Here is the original image of the clock

First come first served.

Pub of the day in Fife goes to the St Andrews Brewing Co in South Street St Andrews.

We have darkened its doors :!: and marginally increased the average age of the customers, I would say on the night we sampled its delights we were probably the oldest by a good 30 years. Its a university town, and the bar was full of young people.

..and here is our Alvis Grey Lady in moving pictures at Silverstone. Video starts with it just coming into shot and the camera follows it as it makes its sedately way around the track.

Here is an unusual picture of a chap who was usually photographed doing what he did best!
So who is he and what is he doing here?
