National Grid comes to Layham

UK Power Networks have been working on the local pylons and lines as part of plans to develop a new 400,000 volt (400 kV) connection between Bramford Substation (west of Ipswich) and Twinstead Tee (south of Sudbury) Who are they? - Customers don’t pay their electricity bills to them, for a start. They own and maintain electricity cables and lines across London, the South East and East of England. Large platforms appeared. They did surveys of some local residents and hinted at bigger pylone. NO thank you! Men began working on scary looking mobile platforms. And then they packed up and went home! Home .

Izobelle - our new granddaughter

Hayley with her `bump` at the beginning of April. At least three months to go before delivery. However, Nature said otherwise, and on May 10 this little bundle of joy arrived and was named Izobelle. Proud Mum looking worn, but glad it's all over, and baby Izobelle looking at her mum. Proud Nana and Grandad having their first holds of the little bundle Adoring Mum and baby Izobelle. Little did we know what a privilege and pleasure it would be to be part of the little ones` early life. Home

Floods in Layham

Every few years we get a really wet period and this year was no exception. Layham and Hadleigh don't suffer too badly as far as property damage goes, however, a few people get a bit of a scare. as these first two images from Layham show. This is the Granary in Layham. Built on piles but these are under water here. These two images are of the area in front of the Council Offices. Normally I follow a footpath across here, but not today! The Rugby Club grounds in Hadleigh, as you seldom see them. Home
