Since I was waiting for Mark T to get to Grantham railway station, it was time to take some more photos! Going to really miss, seeing the InterCity 125 trains, when they start being removed from the EMCL. So better get photos of them, while I can!

Kevin McCloud follows 10 pioneering households hoping to build new homes, and a brand-new street, as part of Britain’s most extensive self-build project. In this episode, Paul and Blanka and their two children attempt to construct an eco-home. Paul puts his career as a human rights lawyer on hold to build an ambitious three bed sustainable home, using natural, chemical-free materials, and for no more than a £160,000 – including the price of the plot. However, the project ends up costing the family more than they bargained for, and not just financially.
