Seth's Buried Treasure post!

This post is a "combo" post for Seth's Buried Treasure call, made up of several postings on the same topic.  I decided to merge them all into one posting to make up a proper collection!  We start in Prague and then move onto my home town of Brighton...
This one was recently found in Prague, Czech Republic by my friend Sullivan McPig (he has his own blog too, listed on right).  He took a photo of it specially for this collection!
The following are ones that I've found

 We went for a walk along the seafront last week, and found some more drain covers!!
This one has holes in it!!!

 And this one has lumps!!!

 This one has holes and lines on it....

 And this one is self locking!!!  How does it unlock though???

 This one looks a bit like a wagon wheel and has bits of glass in!!

 Oh!  I think this one's my favourite!  It's got a daisy in the middle!!!

 We found another drain cover just with lines on it.

I decided to add my three new found drain covers to the big post of all of them!
This one I found in Rotherhithe, London, last May!

This one I found near Spitalfields Market in London

And this one I found near Victoria Station, London, not far from that fancy hotel that Princess Kate stayed in before her wedding!!
(Ed's note: I can't tell if this is the same as the other starburst ones we found in Brighton.....?)

As promised, I've now collected all my drain cover pictures into one post!!! This one is the latest, taken in Brighton, England!

And a round Brighton one with holes in!!

And a rusty Brighton drain cover!!

I found this one in Groningen, Holland back in February 2011 and has the Martini Tower on it!

These ones are from Groningen, too!

This one is from Hove in England, and has a starburst on it!

And this one has a lion!!!
Below is my original post all about drain covers in Brighton, England, first posted in September 2010!!!

A couple of weeks ago, me and Andrea went for a walk. I wanted to show her the drain covers I'd noticed - I think because she's higher up, she doesn't see them but they're ever so pretty!! This one has glass in some of it!

This one says "Gas Gas" on it - Andrea says thats You Tilly Tea.

This one's pretty too - I like the squares and diamonds on it!

This one's another You Tilly Tea for Water.

G G. I wonder if that's another gas one? The other gas one we saw was also a square cover...

This one has a sunflower engraved on it!!!

Oh - a rectangular one! Wonder what this is for?

This one's called "Pam Water". I gues she's in charge of that thing called You Tilly Tea.

Oh!! This one's made up of diamonds but has a flowery design on top!

And another one made up of circles!

Hodges and Butler..... wonder who they are?

Oh! More gas ones!! Yeah, I think all the gas ones must be squares. That's how they tell.

Another square gas one!

Ah, now we have to be careful now. This is Grade C Dangerous Electricity. From Sigane. Wonder where Sigane is?

On the way home, we found some more drain cover things. This one says M but Andrea said it might be W for Water.

A triangular one!! I wonder what that does?

It's a Thomas Dudley Meter! I wonder what You Tilly Tea that is? I've never heard of getting Dudley and Thomas Bills.

FP - wonder who that is?  

FH Brickhouse. Hmm..... Oh, it's Water.... it says so on the bottom!!

Fire Hydrant.... Andrea says that's for the Fire Engines if they need water to put fires out.

Oh, another little square one - must be gas!

We also saw one with a starburst in!

And another FH Water one! I never knew there were so many shapes and designs!

We Met Winston!!!

 Last week, Andrea took me and Tango out for the afternoon.  It was pouring with rain so me and Tango stayed in Andrea's bag because Tango doesn't like getting his ears wet.  It's a bear thing apparently.  But Andrea took some pictures for me and saw these fancy tiles that are really old!

 She also saw some more funny graffitti!!!

 They even painted plug sockets at the bottom!!!

 After we arrived at Andrea's friends house, Andrea got us out and we met Winston the labrador!!  He was SOOOOO excited to see us, he dribbled on my ears!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 Winnie showed us the kitchen so we could make some tea!!
Afterwards, Andrea went upstairs with her friend to sort out the Crafting Room and me, Tango and Winnie looked at Andrea's photo album from when she went to Las Vegas.  (Andrea's friend is going there next year!)

 Later on, Andrea came downstairs again and had cuddles with Winnie.  He likes cuddles!!

 When we got home, we found that Andrea's friend had given us lots of stuff to play with....

And we found a pair of socks inside the blue bag!
We made Andrea wear them straight away!!!
