Redhill has seen a little excitement over the past week, with the arrival of a tower crane to help build their new Sainsbury store. It involved a road closure, a certain amount of confusion, and a chance to examine some most impressive plant at close quarters. I took these photos on my way home from work, just down the road from the office.
It rather rather reminds me of The Siphonaptera nursery rhyme.
Big fleas have little fleas,
Upon their backs to bite ’em,
And little fleas have lesser fleas,
and so, ad infinitum.
Crane modelling is almost a hobby in itself. Ten years ago, ESNG had a member, Aidan, who was into modelling large cranes in plastic. The end results were most impressive.
