    I seem to have spent quite a lot of time in Browns over the last few weeks, after not visiting it for several years.

    It's been great to rediscover the old place - also been good to take some people around on their first visits.

    Props, responding to gravity in various different ways:

    Now for some 'before and after' nostalgia...

    I haven't got any recent pics of the 'ferret hole' but here's one I took in the mid '90s:

    I'll take another photo next time I'm down there for another 'before and after' comparison.
