Weight and Stuff Report – 3 September 2016

Down again today, still quite random, I’m sure…

I took myself out for a return visit to Alnwick today. It was a bit of a grey day, and it was just stating to rain as I went out, but I decided to go anyway (worst case, I’d have a bus ride with some scenery and do a bit of reading).

I got off a bit earlier to pay a visit to Barter Books – this is a quite impressive second-hand bookshop in the old station. Lots to see, but I managed not to buy anything this time. Maybe on another visit (possibly not on a Saturday, as the place was busy…).

I then wandered over the road[1] and got some photographs of the Tenantry Column, otherwise known as the Lion Column. More on that later, but for now, here’s one of its lions:

Is it me, or does it look like it’s worried about something?
