Long Eaton revisited...

Recommended Posts

Must be 20 years+ since I visited Long Eaton......

Hoping to use my freebie 'wrinkly' bus pass, on next weeks jaunt, to rectify the situation.

Could BiP, Mick, etc perhaps recommend where I might enjoy a nice lunch/pint, adjacent to the Market Place?

No gyppo grub for me.....ta!

Went free to Buxton on the 'Trans-Peak' service from Broad Marsh yesterday.

Enjoyed it immensely - only allowed myself 2 hours there - must go again, loads more to see.

Have arrived in the 20th Century by investing in a digital camera: nice camera, crap operator...

Took a few pics yesterday and plan to take more on my local travels, as I acquire some basic skills.

Hope to load them onto my 'Fotopic' website, as some occupational therapy for the summer months.

Den, thanks for your recommendation.....

Went into The Litten Tree for a pint and a snack at lunchtime.

Very enjoyable, nice place....plenty of fighting room!

Not over impressed with the shops and market....

Rather a more sophisticated version of Bulwell, but considerably fewer 'toothless women in curlers' on show.

:Friends: Basicaly rob i think they are all the same :Friends: I shop in Beeston aswell as Long eaton. I find Beeston best simply because at the weekends getting into and leaveing Long Eaton is a nightmare, traffic lights every twenty yards humps on the main roads aswell as speed cameras everywhere, ridiculous.IMO.

I avoid shopping at the weekends do mine in the week much less stressssssssssss. !jumping!
