how far beyond Nottingham they could travel?



Nothing of any size could get beyond Clifton Grove, there is an old ford and gravel bank  just before you get to Beeston Weir. The water at times is less than a foot deep.

It was one's shoulder.

He fell orf an orse.


My Mother in Law fell off a bus a short while after and the same surgeon fixed her  shoulder up.

She was right chuffed to be touched by the same surgeon as charles.
