  1. Past hour
  2. Being close to the Trent it's very noticeable how much cleaner it's become in my 56 years in the area. You can now stand at the side and see the riverbed.
  3. After a couple of shuffles I ended up settling down just 50 miles up river on the Trent. Think the Trent is in my veins. Last week I fished my local stretch and caught some nice grayling and a trout - a bit different to fishing on the Embankment steps 70 years ago for a few humble gudgeon, I keep thinking about travelling over and having a dabble at maggot drowning off the steps.

  5. The Pianoman

    Buses in Nottingham

    Its an Alexander bodied Seddon with a Gardener engine. It would originally have been owned by a Scottish bus company. (registration also suggests that). I used to drive one similar, or very likely that one, when it was owned by an outfit called Borderline Travel (yes you read it correctly) of Eastwood. It was always breaking down!

    If I remember correctly Ian, Jersey kapwoods chimney was octagonal,and 120ft, don't know what they were burning but it was a mucky bugger, only went up it the once. The gals in the factory would wave and shout lewd comments.
  27. Hmm, time flies!! I spent my last two Christmas/New Years holidays down at my late parents house in the "new St Anns", 77 and 78, but much preferred where I was living at the time in North Yorks, less folks and better countryside. Just a short walk to the cliffs and North sea, short bus ride to some great beaches. Then in July of 79, made my last but one trips to my parents, then down to Heathrow for the Quantas flight to Melbourne via Brisbane and Sydney. Last time I was back in Nottingham, it was a flight from San Francisco International. I hate to say this, but I was glad to get back home, Sacramento, that is. Nottingham was so crowded, streets had shrunk and were so narrow. Even though Sacramento was twice to three times Nottingham's population, it seemed less crowded and the streets were twice as wide! I presently live in rural southern Missouri, in the Ozarks, America's oldest mountain chain, what's left of it that is. I love it down here and it will be my last resting place when my time comes.
