I've never done any bricklaying, and I'm sure that if I had, it would be about as good as my welding i.e. totally useless and a danger to all who might use the end product. Rick likes to point out that a certain wall might be done in English Garden Wall Bond, or Flemish Bond or whatever, but it all goes over my head. Nevertheless I like to see a good bit of brickwork although I know nothing about it. Now and again I actually get excited by it. Here are the top three bits spotted on our recent cruise.
In 3rd place a railway bridge on the Thames - a bit tatty now but what a feat! Look at the wonderful edging on that middle bit.
In second place, this lovely sweeping arch on the Oxford canal somewhere between Wormleighton and Napton. I love the colours as much as the curves.
Finally my favourite. This boat house on the Thames. I bet Rick doesn't know what Bond this is.
