The Nottingham Sleeper Company

Recommended Posts

Can anyone remember 'The Nottingham Sleeper Company' Mid 60's was in the Crossing keepers old house at Colwick crossings?

I think it might be a private house now, does anyone still live in it?

There was an inventor who lived there early 80's. I remember he was always in the EP with some crackpot invention or another (Although that is being rude , as his inventions always, IMMSC , were to benefit the disabled) Like a snooker cue with a pair of wheels attatched to the front for one arm snooker players!!
