Martin and Eliza Carthy in Beverley

It was so good to see Martin still playing at 80 years old. He was so important and seminal to Folk Rock and the development of British Folk Music.

Eliza is a real force to be reckoned with. Her voice and violin were simply brilliant!!

A superb evening – and an apt first exploration out of lockdown!! A covid concert!!

Second World War fortifications on the East Coast – photos

As we walked to Fraisthorpe we passed the Second World War fortifications. All along the beach were a series of machine gun pill boxes and antitank concrete blocks.

We were preparing for invasion. It looked as if it was only a matter of time before the Nazis would invade. We hurried built a whole network of defences.

Due to coastal erosion these fortifications are now slipping into the sea.
