Last time I had the miss fortune to go to Haigh Hall I had to push a wheelchair over these cobbles(setts) which was hard work(only entrance at the time).I hope it is a lot smoother now? If not you would think the council would put sort of matting down

It looks nice and normal around here.....Lawrence Llewelyn Bowen wasn't let loose then!

Peter these cobbles where put down in the olden days before wheelchairs where invented.
Invalids in those days would just have had to walk by using crutches, just imaging how hard work it must have been for long john silver when he landed on a desert island and had to try and walk up the beach on his stump.

These cobbles will be very smooth, Why, because they are cemented level.

Luisco chocolate. Looked nice, so I bought a box. Yuck... Belgium chocolate. I ended up throwing them away as no one else in the family likes the taste.
