  2. Good Day. Today the sun was shining, so I came up with the bright idea of getting the cycles out of hibernation in the garage where they have been since October. Seeing as I moan so much if I have to endure a walk in the park, Chris jumped at the chance. We decided to take it easy, seeing as we both have chest problems, just a five miler on the flat. When we got home, we felt really pleased, today felt as if we have achieved something. Onwards and upwards aye Miducks. PS, Chris got a bloomin' puncture two miles from home . Daft Bo99er.

  5. No Phil, the Cedars building is still there, having been turned into ‘executive apartments’ a long time ago. In fact I know 3 people who live in the building but I’ve never been invited in. All I remember about the Cedars years ago was that it was a rehabilitation centre, my Grandad was in there in 1953/54ish recovering from a bowel cancer operation. He didn’t live much longer after that sadly. The Ewing School for the Deaf was the location of the first Youth Club I ever attended and I learned to do the Twist there!! Don’t remember there being any deaf kids there while Chubby Che

  7. Regarding the recent events in Halam, I feel so sad for the victim, his family and also the accused and HIS family. He looks a very kind and caring man to me but he obviously had serious issues chewing away at him to leave home in the middle of the night to attempt murder. Such a shame.

  11. I like the casual reference to "just a five miler". If that's what you do when you're out of practice, what will you be doing when you're fit ?

  12. I'm not high enough up the list to be getting a vaccine just yet, but I've discovered that the place where I'll be getting one is only a 5-minute walk away.

  15. I’ve sat next to Susan George a couple of times since the Victoria Hotel episode, but didn’t mention seeing her being eaten alive by Patrick Wayne. Several years ago we were in a box at a fantastic event at the Royal Albert Hall. In the next box to us were Susan George and Joan Collins with their husbands. On another occasion we shared a table in Pret A Manger at Bicester Village.

  17. From the higher floors there must be a view of the Derbyshire hills on a clear day if you face in that direction. I know you can see Crich from Mapperly Plains. To the right is the hill we used to sledge down in the '50's.

  20. HSR. I think the culvert that they were referring to was on a field next to Valley Road. You are right, though, about the Pitch and Putt course on Woodthorpe Park...... and the football pitches on there did become waterlogged sometimes as it’s mostly clay soil and doesn’t drain well

  21. Ben, I was staying in the Victoria Hotel with an Irish Wolfhound in 1975, yes it’s true ...... I shared a lift late one night with the hound, Susan George and John Wayne’s son Patrick. Don’t think they noticed I was there, they were all over each other, expect they had a good night!

  22. The last time I went in there it was occupied by Goodmarriot and Hursthouse, the electricians. I took a motor in for a rewind. When they moved I think it became a golf equipment shop. The 'haunted' museum has got to be a load of nonsense.

  23. trogg if you go on to stannspredemolition site you can see lots of photos. You can also take a walk along St Anns Well Road. There is lots of good infomation on this site. Yes It might not have been fit for human habitation but it was a community like no other. Just like Hucnknall Was before "Robin Hood Line" /Tesco'/and Tram

  25. So sorry to read about your friend, nonna. Does he live near you ? Mary, when I said I’d lost my sense of smell, this included a part loss of taste as well ((the two senses are closely linked). My taste as well as my sense of smell have both returned over the past few months after years and years of absence, although my taste is still not as acute as I think it should be! But i must admit, it is good to have both senses back again - long may it last.

  26. As an aside, I lifted this picture from a 29min.video on YT. It's called, "Daybrook to Bestwood walk", going along the old track bed. The map shows the old lines that were around that area. I can post the video if anyone wants to see it. I found it very interesting.

  27. I do remember seeing the brickworks and it’s tall chimney before it was demolished. Nottingham Patent Brick Company? A disused car showroom and a supermarket now occupy the site. There was an enormous quarry at the top of Woodthorpe Drive from where the clay had been excavated and which is now a housing estate.
