Here's a bunch of kids. A team of explorers play a game of cricket in London's Trafalgar Square to launch their expedition
to Mount Everest to play the world's highest game of cricket near Everest base camp at 16,945ft (5,165m).

The Hay Wain by John Constable, 1821

Constable's painting is based on a site in Suffolk, near Flatford on the river Stour. The hay wain, a type of horse-drawn cart, stands in the water in the foreground. Across the meadow in the distance on the right, is a group of haymakers at work. The cottage shown on the left was rented by a farmer called Willy Lott and stands behind Flatford Mill. Today, the cottage and river path are still much as they were in Constable's time.

Railway enthusiasts pack the platform at York station as the Peppercorn, the first new mainline steam locomotive to be built in
Britain for nearly 50 years, leaves for Newcastle on its first voyage with fare-paying passengers.

It will be 80,000 - but much of this will be 'temporary' and the seating capacity will shrink to 25,000 after ther games. London opted for the temporary design because Games organisers considered an 80,000-seat venue was unlikely to pay its way after 2012 and could become a white elephant.

I reckon you could use some sunshine there in England!

Here's a statue of King Edward VII which stands at one Eastern entry to the Sydney (Australia) CBD. The sculptor was Thomas Brock, also responsible the Queen Victoria Memorial outside Buckingham Palace in London.

I think England needs some heat from the colonies...


Not my image

Record temperatures accompanied by many bushfires.

In North Yorkshire, with turf racing abandoned, the gallops at Middleham exercised the racehorses in deep snow.
