How's your day?

It's still there. I never remember it being a restaurant. It's now a luxury home. I think it was recently sold. Ian Moore of IH Moore the electrical contractors used to live there. He owned the care home at Hazleford which was the Star and Garter pub but that's been sold on recently. We used to have some good times down there when it was a pub run by Terry Wanless the landlord.

May have been called, 'The Old Mill' but couldn't be sure now.  I don't think I'd like the Dover Beck running under my front room.

It must have cost a fortune to renovate.  I would think the brick shell would have been the only part salvageable and even that pretty damp.  Interesting.

monthly sweep with a shovel full of kiln dried sand does the job.

Just come in from doing that to my driveway. I use a polymer sand product called "Pavelock" it literally runs into all the little gaps, sweep the excess off and water with a light mist and its good for another six months.

My neighbour showed me an ariel photo of our road taken in 1960 and amazed  at how a place can change in a short 60 years. There is a good view of our house which solves one mystery and adds another. When I was modifying the kitchen 30 years ago there was soot marks inside of a wall that suggested that a copper boiler had been there. But there was no sign of a chimney. The photo shows that a chimney stack came through the roof then but with two pots on it? There are still three stacks remaining with two, three and four pots on them. So that made eleven pots in total but I can only account for nine? At least the starlings find them useful. Only three pots in use now.

Interestingly there were no pavements on the road and it was not tarmacked. Not a car in sight! The Yew tree that is being felled tomorrow was quite small; indicating that it is not an ancient tree, thank goodness..

Get a drone PP. You will get some interesting  photographs and videos of the area. My son, who lives near the Forest of Bowland films some amazing features. I would get one myself but I live within the zone of an airfield and it would not function.

I don't think of 60 years as short !  To me that's quite a long time ago, almost back to the days when I was very young, and I've probably changed almost as much as your road.

Wow!  They made it into quite the place.

 

Still wouldn't want to live there though.  Had a horrible reputation for child labour  (Wickepedia)  Probably 'aunted.

They're not taking your toe off, are they?  How are you going to count past 19? :blink:

 

I've Not heard of nadgy but my mother would sometimes refer to someone in a temper as being radgy. No idea of the correct spelling, if there even is one!

 

Keep smiling!  Think of the black bottom!

Ben the way I feel even being a non drinker they would go down a treat.

If the pubs were open I would be on my way.

I had a knock on my door this morning and it was my next door neighbour asking if they could put their car on my drive whilst they have their guttering, fascias and soffits done. Said yes and being cheeky asked them how much it was costing. It was a lot less than I thought so I asked her if she would ask them to do a quote for me. I was thinking it would be a lot more as I have a conservatory (iPad keeps changing to conservation!) and a one storey extension on the side so I was expecting them to have to use scaffolding. 
When my handyman came to clear my gutters along with a few other jobs a couple of weeks ago he told me that the guttering on the front was pulling away from the fasci and was about ready to fall off. He had tried to reattach it but the fascia was too rotten and the guttering had tilted towards the house meaning water was running down the wall, not good as the house is rendered. It also explains the damp in the front bedroom wall and fitted wardrobe. As I am fairly certain I will sell up in the next few years (downsizing to a bungalow hopefully) I was a bit worried that I could end up with a big repair bill for rendering etc. before leaving.

The men doing the job came round with my neighbour (he does look out for me knowing I am on my own) and quoted me the same price. I mentioned about the conservatory and side room but apparently they have some gizmo that means no scaffolding is needed. They had been recommended to my neighbours by someone who has had work done by them so it appears they are reputable. So I took the plunge and told them I wanted it done. As they are doing both houses (we are semi-detached) they have knocked £200 off the price quoted as well. Result.

Being radgy, nadgey and having the 'nadges' were all used in our family...
