Being at St. Ives.

Still at St. Ives with the water hurtling past. At least it has stopped raining for a while. Hopefully the river will now start to slow as the excess water moves down stream.
Rather disappointed with St. Ives, to be honest it seems a rather nondescript place.

The most exciting thing about the town centre would seem to be this statue to England's only military dictator. It has been suggested by a previous vicar from a local church that the book under his arm is not a bible but more likely contains the addresses of his mistresses.

It stands on Market Hill, where they still hold the market every Monday.
I'm sure that a more thorough investigation would reveal a cornucopia of good things about the town but we're fed up with being rained on.

Watch this space...........
