Wendover Woods - Photo Sphere

I took this photo on a recent trip to Wendover Woods. This spot is towards the end of the Stick Man walking trail, and if you look around you may spot a creature with terrible claws and terrible teeth in his terrible jaws. He has knobbly knees, and turned-out toes, and a poisonous wart at the end of his nose. His eyes are orange, his tongue is black; he has purple prickles all over his back. That's right, IT’S A GRUFFALO!

London Canal Locks

This is another map I made many years ago when I was living in Camden and used to walk along Regent's Canal.

These are locks along the Canals of London, including the Grand Union Canal, Regent's Canal, Hertford Union Canal, and River Lee Navigation.


It appears the source material I used for the map is no longer online. Hopefully this map proves useful to someone.

Lee Hall - Photo Sphere

This "photo sphere" was taken a couple weekends ago, on March 8 2015 at Lee Hall. (formerly Sopwell Priory aka Sopwell Nunnery)

As this ruin is only about 500 years old it doesn't get as much attention as other sites in St Albans. Even the previous building on the site, the nunnery, was only 400 years old when it was torn down. This is still a full thousand years younger than other, better preserved, ruins present about the town.

Despite its relative youth I'd say it's still worth a visit.

Sublime Text Packages

I've been using Sublime Text 3 for a while now. While reinstalling one of my VM dev boxes and thinking about Package Control and which packages to install, I thought "I should have a list somewhere." Here it is.

Somerset House - December 2013

I took this "photo sphere" in December of 2013 at Somerset House. The ice skating is between sessions, hence why there's nobody on the ice.

Christchurch earthquake: buildings set for demolition, partial demolition or make safe

The Canterbury Earthquake website publishes details about buildings set for demolition, partial demolition or make safe. I've taken their data and turned it into a map giving geographical reference to the destruction that has hit the city of Christchurch.

The data here is from the 27 April 2011 update, showing 362 buildings set for demolish, partial demolish or make safe. See the official list for a complete listing by heritage type.

The process of identifying buildings is ongoing and I'll try to keep this map updated. If you notice it's gotten out of date then leave a comment as a reminder for me. With the updates, links to old maps may stop working, so come back here for the latest.
