This shed looks distinctly like it's been made from
old railway sleepers, and from the evidence in the
foreground I'd say that Dr Beeching, the Destroyer
of Railways, was here in the 1960's with his
malevolent axe, making people miserable with his
unbridled devastation. This is at Kingsdown, a
minor but pleasant town between Deal and Dover
on the southeast coast. I don't know if a railway
ever did pass through here - perhaps a local branch
off the main Dover to Margate line did, in which
case it would almost certainly have been closed
down by Beeching. Some parts of the country are
still incensed about those cuts, especially where
local bus services have now been cut as well, leaving
communities isolated and very dependent on the car.
Yet apparently we need to spend billions on yet more rails links across London, mainly, it
seems, for the benefit of the shop owners in Bond Street, and an appalling amount of
money on a new high-speed rail link between London and Manchester which will cut the
journey time by about eight minutes. Where is Mr Beeching now, I wonder?

It might look odd if all that wood is not framed in wood!
