  1. Tony Apperley didn't live at Crossings Cottage, he did indeed live around the corner. This one - His house was the last one of that row and has a sign on it saying Rose Cottages which is still there. The land at the side belongs to that house. I used to walk my dog on Colwick park with his wife who also took their dog on there. She told the tale of the little triangle of land that was at the end of her garden that joined the crossing, being sold to their dog for 1p by the railway. I presume that Tony had asked permission to buy it to complete their land. That bit of land seems to have been taken back although I guess that nobody even remembers, or knew that it didn't belong to the railway anymore. He had fought a long battle with the council to try and remain in his original house by the canal, off Castle Boulevard but they got it off him in the end, he brought the sign with him though.
