Spot the cat has returned!


After a week's unexplained and increasingly worrying absence, magnificent Spot has returned, discovered this morning relaxing in the laundry basket as though nothing had happened, which of course, in cat mind it hadn't. Many of our visitors have admired Spot during their stay here so may be pleased to receive this happy news.

New track now open!


Filling spread this morning by Daniel Williams and first reports are positive. In future please approach by the track nearest to Ding Dong Engine House, as shown on the photo below; not perfect but much better than the old way.

A dull day but better way!

New track

And here's the man and machine wot done it!

Spot


Spot, one of our two much admired and well loved cats, has not been home for more than 3 days and we are concerned for his safety. Seen here enjoying an unauthorised spell of relaxation on our furniture!

Loo Noos*


It has become apparent that last Winter's gales produced an unexpected benefit. Their destruction of a section of our hedge reveals that it is now possible to see St Michael's Mount whilst sitting on the loo in The Cabin.
