Some destinations…

But first…
Dulltown, Europe: Today’s heraldic term is ‘Or’.
‘Or’ is gold, one of the two heraldic metals, the other being ‘Argent’ – silver. The rules say that on your shield you can have a metal on a colour, or a colour on a metal, but never a metal on metal or a colour on a colour – however, the arms of Jerusalem are the exception to this rule having an ‘Or’ cross thing on an ‘Argent’ background – this is allowed because of Jerusalem’s apparent ‘holiness’… Hm…

As you will know by now dear reader, I am quite fond of words. I like nice sounding place names in particular. Over the last couple of months I have at odd times noted a few down from the fronts of buses and from railway station destination boards. Shall I arrange these in the manner of a poem, say two or three destinations per line?

Setting Dyke, North Cave (Memorial), Church Fenton.
Sherburn-in-Elmet, Swinemoor Estate, Tickton.
Crossgates, Liverpool Lime Street, Hull Fair.
Longhill Asda, The Lawns.
Gilberdyke Village, Spring Cottage, Withernsea.
London St Pancras, Molescroft, Designer Outlet.
Gypsyville, Bristol Temple Meads, Wigginton.
Noddle Hill Way, Butterfly Meadows.
New Pudsey, London Kings Cross, Mixenden.
Wombwell, Kestral Avenue, Ulleskelf.
Cleckheaton, Broomfleet, Cheadle Hulme.
Kirkby on Bain, Bridlington.

Perhaps you might like to get a large map of the UK and a packet of coloured map pins?
