A lovely April day, not a rainy one!

The weather has warmed up a little, and we have had some lovely sunshine as well.

We enjoyed the Heath Robinson exhibition in the upstairs gallery in West House.  Not only pictures by Heath Robinson, for sale, but from his fellow artists.  Apparently they belonged to a club called the "Froth Club", and used to go on pub crawls to places like the Queens Head, and talk pictures and art.  The pictures there, all originals are for sale, some for £5,000 and some for very much more.  Heath Robinson's pen drawings were not the usual crazy inventions, but still featuring light sides of life.

The view from the gallery in West House is superb - I am not allowed for rights issues to show any pictures by Heath and his contemporaries, but thought these might interest blog readers who have not been to the exhibition.

 Here are some pictures taken during a walk yesterday from the top of the hill in the High Street, down Chapel Gardens, into Tookes Green, then down Nower Hill.  Lovely in the sunshine as well, slight chill to the air, but seasonal.  Also appreciate the flora and fauna local residents provide to enhance the street view.

Finally a shot of one of Pinner's private schools - on the main road into Pinner from North Harrow
