Bits of Britain

I live in Birmingham and work as a trade plate driver, or 'plater'. This involves the collection and delivery of company cars, hire cars and other miscellaneous vehicles from anywhere in the country to anywhere else.

Once a plater has delivered a vehicle it is up to them to make their way to the next collection under their own steam. This could be a hundred yards down the road or hundreds of miles away. It could be in the middle of a city or in an obscure village that only its inhabitants have heard of.

I spend a lot of time on buses and trains, and do a lot of walking. Occasionally I hitch-hike.

These blogs are records of moments from here and there.
