    not worst

    when the revolution comes, I know where I will be making my last stand against the minions of the dictatorship

    it’s the Bastille, it’s the Alamo, it’s Kelmscott

    Is drawing cocks on a walled stone phallus really necessary?


  3. Bento says:

    If I lived in Kelmscott, that’s what I’d build, too.


  4. skink says:

    so, with the phallus and the yellow needle drop, does this signify it as the cottaging and shooting-up centre of Kelmscott?

    do they not have public toilets?

    the castle must get truly medieval on the weekend. It’ll be like a Hieronymus Bosch painting in there on a Friday night

    I’ve never seen Laterite boulders look so good.


  6. Jaidyn-Jaxxon says:

    So, what’s that yellow thing at the entrance? Is this really for shooting up? It is, isn’t it.

    The cock graffiti is a little too convenient for me – surely a set up.


  8. Rolly says:

    It’s been there for a while – 1984 scratched into the mortar.
    How come none of the sharp eyed TWoP cynics has noted it’s presence before now?


  9. Bill O'Slatter says:

    Because it’s 9/10 ths of the way to Ruraltardia. Interestingly it’s also the home of the famous towel thrower innerer
    Who are we going to laugh at without you Lannie ?

      There’s no danger of any shortage if you’re talking pollies, Bill, and although Wilson’s been retired to well deserved irrelevance the blogosphere, we’ve still got Barnaby.

    hi guys, great site – it has been a pleasure working my way through the archives.

    thought I’d throw in a suggestion for TLA to saunter over to the Emporors Palace in Melville. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.

    Glad you’re enjoying the archives. I’d better not add those comments though. I might try and get a pic of the outside. TLA

    I’m starting to think there is a deeper meaning to all these cocks. A bit like the old war chalking, it must be code for something.

    If only I wasn’t smacked up to my eye balls on Kelmscott’s finest (oxymoron of the day), I would profer an explanation.


  12. slaadi says:

    I had my first ever can bong in that castle in 1997. Good times.


    • TL says:

      LOL – I was thinking of all the memories as well! When I was a little kid I thought it was a ‘real’ castle ha ha. It’s definatley a bit dodgy now!


  13. Hugh Jass says:

    TLA, are you saving fart art for another decade?

    In all seriousness, any Idea why this thing was built? aside from a zombie defence outpost / junkies last stand? Its not actually that scabby nowdays, aside from the lingering stale piss smell. but damn its a weird thing to build. the park is also not anywhere close to the worst ive seen, even in the gozzie area. rather decent place to walk the dog while you wait for your pizza. it just seems such a pointless thing to build…
