  1. If not fussed about TV, goto Plusnet. Watch out on Money Saving Supermarket as there will be some more £100 cash back deals shortly . It's all on the BT Infrastructure and doesn't use outsourcing in the support department.
  2. Sandon St has never been Sandon road , all the plots were auctioned as 'Sandon St , Late of Newcastle St'....
  3. nice shot, great colours
  4. so, no movement on this yet? ;-)
  5. once the transponder is off - the only things that can spot a plane is primary radar , WW2 era, which looks for metal things in the sky. It cannot identify such things. Very little of the earth's surface, including overland, is covered by this.
  6. the exact same thing goes on today via the fares wars. The number of start-ups that nctx has muscled out by running loss leading fares on a temp basis is disgraceful. Frankly, as the council own most of the shares, you'd expect them to try and shine some sort of moral light on the pratice
  7. cheers all. Just waiting on an additional lens then happy snapping
  8. I think for what you get, the fares are decent.If they were going up and you didn't see investment, then I'd moan. Sure some costs are rising, and the fuel VAT refund allowance is being hacked - but it is there to make a profit, or not to be subsidised at any rate. There are always exceptions, naturally, but I find the buses clean, a good frequency, and relatively piss free.
  9. Ok, I confess. I'm a Londoner, and my Notts knowledge extends to about 8 years. So, for that reason (i) I dont know the surrounding area too well, and (ii) I couldn't drive if my life depended on it so rely on public transport (or possibly a well-bribed other half). Recently done a massive kit upgrade and keen to get out and about. Unfortunately my job means I am only home at weekends for the near-term. So, could any reccomend 'dead certs' for landscapes that could be got at with public transport? I'm initially thinking just head out to the Peaks, but hey, thats a big place when you've only got an afternoon?
  10. a very very long time after the OP, but did you get the group up & running, and is it still there?
  11. getting the bus down all good, but I've had issues coming back if there are delays. If there are 2 or more of you, 120 squid from the folks at D&G has someone waiting for you on arrival, and dropped at your front door
  12. yeah, its interesting stuff. I've seen quite a lot of 'about 18xx' when it comes to some of the birth dates on the older census.... Yup @DaveW. I can see the age gap is a bit too much for those two to get married, by any standards. So I'm left chasing the mysterious Dorothy, potentially of 6 Shakespeare St. I would end the quest at the stage, as the Soar's have now moved out of the house and I should start on the next bunch, BUT, they still own it for a while, as I've seen adverts of Ben jnr renting out flats in it, so they are still caught up in the timeline. Hopefully the chaps down the archive can fill me in via a few electoral roles...
  13. I walk past that nearly everyday. Perhaps there will be one of those engraved stones above one of the entrances to help identify it...Might take a little stroll.....
  14. dam, I'd looked at picture the past, but I could see there were c16 schools listed the area along radford road at one point, trying to pull them apart was nigh impossible. However, maybe a process of eliminaton could be employed - I guess there couldn't be too many female head mistresses at that time? Have set the other half to work on that. In other happy news, the story of the original inhabitants are now complete, they are all buried in one plot around the corner, and even tracked some old news clippings - it would seem Mr Soar was quite a cad.....
