Not Really Stoned
Whilst Psychic Sally was doing her stuff inside the new Waterside Theatre in Aylesbury I had a little wander around outside to see if I found the design any more pleasing at night.

The front elevation is certainly more attractive when the lights are on.

I was not the only one out tonight: the road is closed for the contractors to lay those small stone sets that seem to be the current urban fashion.

They cheat
What appears to simple folk like me to be carefully laid blocks is actually poured on steaming hot, smoothed out, dusted with some surface coating and then the 'joints' are pressed in with a giant pastry cutter. To complete the deception the joints are individually manicured with further tools. This would never have happened in Telford's day!
