As I remember Rigleys, they had sidings close to the old Leen Valley line.  These extended southwards towards Southglade Road, ending in a steep bank down to the field opposite Southglade.  

 

I might've posted something like this before, but here it is again. The arrow on the right is Rigley's works; arrow on the left is Bulwell Common station.

Anyone know anything about the picture of the kangaroo taken at Bulwell in the Nottingham Evening Post? Didn’t notice one when we were in Bulwell this afternoon but perhaps it doesn’t shop at Tesco.

Actually having a closer look at the picture it looks like 2 possible German Shepherds one standing and one sitting next to it. Sure I can see 2 heads, but then my eyes are as old as me surprisingly.

No kangaroos in Bulwell, but several 'dogs' in Wilkos this afternoon.

It’s possible for a kangaroo (wallaby) to be spotted around this area.  After all, we had one living in our garden in Hertfordshire and I have a photo to prove it.   There are packs of wallabies around the country apparently but more prevalent in the northern Home Counties.  Must admit when my husband told me he’d just seen a ‘kangaroo’ in our garden I thought he’d gone mad!

LizzieM, The collective noun for kangaroos and wallabies is a mob and the easiest way to catch them is to wait around the nearest pub, if they are Australians the will not be able to go without a beer for long.
