  1. Well if you really are oddball then it should be something like 2.05mtrs or absolute oddball at 6feet 8 and 3/4 inch
  2. I use IMGUR for images, never seems to have problems. Never thought to look for Nottm images, I just do anything around 100 pieces or it takes too long to sort them out.
  3. Brew, if you look at the puzzles a few have the pieces on an angle, these are the ones that can be turned. I only did one and got fed up with that type. Re the times, someone must have found a way of fiddling it, you couldn't move all the pieces into place even if you knew exactly where they went, in the times shown. Like the 2 on the top left / centre
  4. I joined when the original link was posted but didn't sign in on my phone when I got the above.
  5. I had to use my phone to get this, don't have a tablet , this is how it came up when I touched a piece;
  6. DVLA show it as Tax due 1st December 2003. First registered Feb 1979. Last V5 issued 16th Sept 1999, possibly date NCT sold it unless it's had multiple owners since.
  7. Part of the issue, from T.V recently, is that some of the test samples sent to labs were being processed by seconded University staff and students, suitably experienced in the work. All of these have now gone back into Uni's. Presumably this was predictable and staff have / are being recruited, but either there aren't sufficient numbers and or they aren't getting to the required standard. It doesn't seem to be a shortage of on the ground sample takers or test sights.
  8. Eastcroft (Town gas) works was on the land that Great Northern Close leads to, so the Gas covers were probably valves on outlets from the works.
  9. Mr Engineer, do you mean in the slabs on the left, looks like there's a V mid picture? https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@52.9482784,-1.1399968,3a,30y,80.06h,68.83t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sGEfHkhYVL9amiZmJFT2RXw!2e0!7i13312!8i6656?hl=en And a III and IIII in this one https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@52.948285,-1.1400246,3a,15y,96h,57.41t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1suJU7e3I0k6lxCHjtlDGlvw!2e0!7i13312!8i6656?hl=en The numbers may have been stonemasons marks. I suspect the bridge has been rebuilt in the past and the slabs got moved around, looking at the ramp on London Rd side the quality of stonework changes mid point, ; https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@52.9483737,-1.1398308,3a,75y,263.57h,97.83t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sE688j3dJ5en2bneKGGryOw!2e0!7i13312!8i6656?hl=en
  10. Google's pretty good at finding answers, but I don't think it can answer the Skills, Bartons or Train question. I'd guess Skills, I seem to remember they went everywhere
  11. I got it from this map, click on the location and it brings up a picture. I went along the East Coast first then over to North Wales https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_lighthouses_in_England
  12. New Brighton, Liverpool https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Brighton_Lighthouse#/media/File:New_Brighton_Lighthouse_2018.jpg
  13. The only good thing for the City to come out of this is managing to get reportedly over £20m (but reports seem to have disappeared now) for the RHE customer list. If RHE had gone bust Ofgem would have transfered the customers to other suppliers who would not have had to pay RHE anything. At around £200 per customer name it seems a high price to pay but B.G will easily recoup that. Even with the thousands if not 10's of thousands of RHE customers like me who will either not transfer or will not renew at the end of their current deal. They will be trying and in some cases succeeding in selling; Boiler maintenance plans. Unnecessary Heating system Powerflushes New boilers at twice the price an independent installer would charge. Energy saving controls. Whole house maintenance plans. And a host of other money making products. Together with persuading people to have Smart meters installed, for which they either get paid or are not penalised for failing to meet targets for the install of the meters.
  14. Still available today, for a bargain £12; Or if Your Stately home needs one a slightly more expensive one;
