Our history is literally under our feet...

It's sad I know, but I get really excited when I find little gems like this...

It's a locally made and branded manhole cover!

Regular readers will know that we have sort of been here before

But when I think of Holly Hill, which I know pretty well, the idea of visualising a foundry making manhole covers is pretty unlikely.

Now it's a very pleasant, prosperous residential area with Junior boys School and is the main access to The Holly Bush Pub and Fenton House.

So finding this just in the street, is West Hampstead was really nice - the case for carrying my camera around is pretty compelling - if you like this sort of thing!

Oooh, careful now Ed. Photographing drain covers can get you suspected as a terrorist.
