    Digby Colliery

    I wasn't actually meaning what the pits name REALLY was. It was always known, to me at least, as Digby Pit.

    Just worked out wot sounded wrong with this. It's Digby Pit. Not Digby Colliery.

    World War One.

    I'll have a look for that book. All about the little people, not necessarily in stature tho'

    Water Meters

    I was paying £33.51 per month with my old water rate. Had a water meter about 2 years ago. My meter was read last month I shall now be paying something like £14.52 per month. (can't be bothered to check). Down from something like £17.60 something or other for the previous 6 months. (can't be bothered to check exact amount). I live on my own, no shower (I do have a bath occasionally), dishwasher, washing machine, loo and all the other stuff. I don't do anything to save water.

    Free bottle of Lucozade

    I tried Dandelion & Burdock a few weeks ago. That doesn't taste like it did 50 years ago either.

    Catstone Hill Farm, Strelley

    I am just being nosey here as I have now become interested in the whereabouts of Catstone Hill Farm. Doing my deliveries today I have been to Turkey Field Farm. I came up Robinettes Lane from Cossall Village. I can't usually get far up the lane to Turkey Field as there is a gate and the owner of Turkey Field doesn't have a key. (Its not his gate). However today I followed a lorry through and was able to drive up to Turkey Field Farm. Did my delivery and was allowed out through the top gate giving me access over the M1 into Strelley Village. I came out directly opposite Strelley Hall. Was Catsone Hill Farm near here and have I just driven up the lane highlighted in the picture above?

    Bottom end of Woodborough Road

    My origins are just above there. Does that make me more heavenly?

    Buses in Nottingham

    I should have said bus shelter. I remember it because I always (and still do) considered it to be the worlds ugliest bus shelter.

    Is that bus stop in the second picture still there? Can't say that I have noticed a different one since my memories of that one.

    Hilltop, Eastwood in the 70s

    PPP's. Can't think it was anything else at the minute. Had a workshop on Barber Street late 70's/early 80's so was on that corner frequently.
