Scavenger hunt–paired capture

I had a good choice of towers to capture for Rinda’s scavenger hunt from the historic to the industrial.  My decision was sealed when I came upon a mosaic that related to one of the local towers meaning I could have 2 items with a link.

These towers are chimneys on old pottery kilns which used to be numerous due to the good clay deposit.  Non of the potteries are still operating and the towers are disappearing too.

I was delighted to find a pavement mosaic marking the importance of these towers in local history

A good reminder! There isn't a cloud in the sky here today, for once, so down it shall be

Great photos! It's been too overcast here for me to see any individual clouds so far. So much rain...
