Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Darenth Valley viaduct






 This is the Darenth Valley viaduct towering above South Darenth. It carries two railway tracks on the line from Dover to London. It has 10 arches, each one 10 metres wide and 20 metres high. It was built in 1859-60.
