Colour­ful echo from the ru­ral past

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

READER Bill Jef­fries spot­ted this colour­ful piece of an­tique farm ma­chin­ery on the round­about at the junc­tion of Harvil Road and Swake­leys Road in Ick­en­ham.

Al­though it has been there a while, no­body has been brave enough to cross the busy road to get a pic­ture of this relic of the area’s ru­ral past among the wild flow­ers.

Or did Mr Jef­fries get out a long lens?

“As always I had my old faith­ful Nikon D7000 with me,” he said.

Ap­pro­pri­ately, he and his wife, Jenny, were on their way to the re­cy­cling cen­tre in Harvil Road at the time.

This old im­ple­ment is a clas­sic ex­am­ple of re­cy­cling, if only for or­na­men­tal pur­poses.
