0160 - Horsey Windpump on Flickr.

Just one of the many windmills in Norfolk. I have a vague recollection that we drove past this one about 8 years ago when we last went to Norwich.

Horsey Windpump is a windpump or drainage windmill in the care of the National Trust in the village of Horsey. The windpump was working until it was struck by lightning in 1943. It was acquired by the National Trust in 1948 from the Buxton Family and has been restored.

0079 - German Cemetery on Flickr.

From Wikipedia

The Cannock Chase German war cemetery is on Cannock Chase, Staffordshire, England.
On 16 October 1959, the governments of the United Kingdom and the Federal Republic of Germany made an agreement about the future care of German military personnel and German civilian internees of both World Wars interred in scattered cemeteries not already maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. It was agreed that the remains would be transferred to a single central cemetery established on Cannock Chase for this purpose.

Quite a solemn evening to be in the cemetery as the sun sets behind it

Wellington Arch, also known as Constitution Arch or (originally) the Green Park Arch, is a triumphal arch located to the south of Hyde Park in central London and at the north western corner of Green Park (although it is now isolated on a traffic island). The arch, and Marble Arch to the north of Hyde Park, were both planned in 1825 by George IV to commemorate Britain’s victories in the Napoleonic Wars
