Does anybody know the story of the burnt out looking house near the junction with Gedling Road?

It has looked the same in the near 10 years I have lived in Arnold.

It's still there and in exactly the same condition.

There's no reference to it, other than that image, anywhere on the net, and the local council refuses to answer any query about it.

Here's your answer. From my brother who is a member of the Arnold history gang:

The Bungalow on rollo drive belongs to a bloke about 50ish. Been in the family for years.

Has been in that condition for about 30 years. He lives in the tin tent ( cavaran ) at the side of the place.

Does your brother attend the Arnold history talks Compo? I was thinking of going along one time. I saw one advertised to be held at the Labour Club.

He does. One of the senior archivists is (or was, not sure if he is still alive) Bill Spick. I used to play with his son and daughter when young. He owns copyright too loads of old Arnold photos.

If you want some gen ask my brother (Peter) and tell him I (Paul) sent you: XXXXXXXXX@XXXXXXXXXXXXX.blot

Thanks very much Compo, very interesting. I have heard of Bill Spick. It's something I've been thinking of getting into a while.

Have taken Peter's email addy thanks. Maybe would be a good idea to take it down off here as you don't know who is dropping by.

Cheers!
