    Yep - proof reading after my 'sped' typing should be a must.
  4. Westridge Late 50s

    @Canny lass - from the names you have given I do remember bringing up the fact that my sister-in-law, Betty Hall, was identified by you in one of the class photos. I can't find any photo with Betty named on it so it must have been this one. I could either say a) it was my memory that had failed and I hadn't totally forgot to do anything with the photo or b ) we were in that transitional period on this site when I was having numerous fails attempting to load photos and when Andy sorted out the problems my memory had still failed to remember what I had been doing! So while everything, including my short term memory, is working your list of names added to the photo

    Numbers added and I haven't attempted to guess a name - all yours. I have a copy prepared to enter the names on.

  7. The following info is from the http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/rd/8ad93b61-5d1a-46e9-ad51-f17b07e91684 site :- History: The school opened officially in 1958 and was reorganised as a middle school in 1976. It had ceased to function by 1977 when the premises were taken over by St. Benet Biscop's Roman Catholic Aided High School. The school records were transferred to the new Meadowdale County Middle School which opened in 1982.

    Aren't 'opportunities' wonderful - cheers Andy.
  9. Roundabout rant

    Couldn't believe it when that document turned up!! There's a similar roundabout on the outskirts of Seaton Delaval
  10. Roundabout rant

    If only I had just said - yes, the bricked area is there to be used. Instead I wondered, is there info in the highway code or anywhere else that a simple Google search will reveal? Oh to be a Technical author! I believe the simple explanation is something like :- a single lane road that requires a roundabout to allow access to and from the road may require an additional lane, only on the roundabout, that allows large vehicles additional space (another lane) to turn on and off the single lane road. But if you really want to impress your fellow Friday night ale tasters with a full explanation of the Geometric Design of Roundabouts then read the 51 pages in this documnet :- http://www.standardsforhighways.co.uk/ha/standards/dmrb/vol6/section2/td1607.pdf
  11. Just an idea... Heritage Walking Tours
