  1. The crane was not pile driving, it was basically dropping a large steel weight onto the ground repeatedly, it would have been about 15 foot long by 8 foot wide and 2 feet thick. I noticed it a lot as I used to walk my dog in that area.
  2. I have never heard of any refuse being tipped in that area, but prior to building the Tesco at top valley, they were using a crawler crane with probably a 10 tonne weight that they just dropped all day long for weeks, probably to consolidate the ground. Probably be in the late 80s.
  3. Things that pee you off

    Someone told me about this house only yesterday, it is owned by a young Chinese man that lives on parkside, he had the house on Ringwood converted into 6 bedrooms, these he lets to Chinese students. They stay for 2 years and then move on. The lady that told me about it was the cleaner who by the sounds of it only cleans the house every couple of years, everything is thrown away as nothing is worth saving, she said it was disgusting. She also mentioned the Romanians taking everything out of the skip. Just remember that these will be your next doctors and dentists.
  4. Buses in Nottingham

    Nottingham has quite a few electric buses, all of the medilink buses are electric. They are charged up at the Riverside park and ride site.
  5. Looks like Broxtowe council are looking to get rid of the town hall. http://www.nottinghampost.com/news/local-news/beeston-town-hall-could-demolished-542285
  6. How's your day?

    You will enjoy Loro Parque, there are lots of wild birds flying loose in large enclosures, plenty of parrots. There is a parrot show as well, where the parrots do the usual tricks as seen in most holiday hotels, but the parrots actually fly in the room.
  7. Wetherspoons pubs

    The one is Eastwood is quite a small pub.
  8. How's your day?

    The cycle race, is it the tour of Britain will be going through Eastwood tomorrow, and will go down Nottingham road and past Lady chatterleys. For any of you keen cyclists, it starts in Mansfield and finishes in Newark, so plenty of places to see it.
  9. How's your day?

    Lady chatterleys is next door to Iceland in Eastwood, it was a car sales place. I think someone told me that it was a doctors house years ago.
  10. Perhaps inevitable...

    I think the old banger mentioned, predated the beetle. each to there own.
  11. Demolition contractors, moved cabins onto site Monday, so hopefully they will get started soon. In above picture why block the entrance with expensive plywood, and then fence it off?
  12. Taylor Bros

    The foundry is still there, I think it is part of Baullfor beatty now. They still make railway lines.
  13. Things that pee you off

    I wonder if they would challenge the law, if they had to pay for the solicitors instead of using legal aid. Do you think that I am daft or stupid, by camping on a public park, what harm am I doing?
  14. Things that pee you off

    It amazes me they all have caravans or motor homes, there are plenty of caravan sites all over the country, why don't they use them? I would like to see what happens when a law abiding citizen parks his touring caravan, on a public park, the pcsos would have a field day.
  15. Things that pee you off

    Just been on the post website, travellers have pitched up in a park in Gedling.
