Huntingdon (Cambridgeshire), remaining suburbia

Posted by davidearl on 3 October 2008 in English (English)

Completed surveying yesterday the outstanding suburban parts of Huntingdon, which now leaves only the central area inside the inner ring road, and the small area either side of the river south of the town centre. The area completed was the streets west of Coneygear Road in Oxmoor, either side of Ambury Road and American Way and the block of pre-1950 terraces and council housing north east of the ring road.

Time to put a jacket or gloves on when surveying now - it was really chilly out on the bike yesterday.

Nice work, David! I can't believe how quickly you've got through it all! Awesome stuff, just awesome.

Really chilly weather for surveying although on the freezing-but-clear days it's actually rather nice (if you have enough to wear!). I get aches and pains in my ears and fingers unless I keep them covered in a cold wind. The most annoying thing is that I keep having to add and remove layers of clothes, depending on whether I'm walking, cycling, or stopped for some reason.

The rainy days are the worst, though, since I find the damp (and the mud) so depressing.
