Re: FORGOTTEN CORNERS

Before the railways the "mineral lines" or tramways ran all over the area, bringing raw materials into the works and delivering finished product to Bradford and the canal network. On another s...

I bet she would have liked a quad bike. She must have been quite young when she was filmed, though she looked like an old woman .

Re: FORGOTTEN CORNERS

I've been having a Forgotten Corner moment of my own, linked to Barnoldswick only by the fact that on Friday Rustique on Rainhall Road were offering a railway map for sale on their Facebook page. The map is an original working drawing of " Low Moor number 5" showing points and signals operated from ...

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

I have been watching them anxiously! Most of them were heading away from us but one or two managed to head in this direction. Lovely to see but they can terrify the ponies so I normally whip them inside when balloons threaten. Things in the air don't usually worry them, their natural predators (plas...

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

Wendy, if it was 4 props, old style, then, yes, it was a `Fat Albert', as the RAF call them, the Hercules. Very agile and and easy at very low level. The pilots loved them but there aren't many about now as new big brothers are coming in. Thanks Tiz, it's good to get that confirmed. It was followin...

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

A very low flying plane! I was down the field lifting thistles and it just seemed to skim over Bleara and then my neighbour's wind turbine. :laugh5: I think it must have been a Hercules training plane, huge with 100 written on a red panel on the tail. I didn't hear it till it was almost over my head...

I don't mind changing duvet covers, as long as there isn't a playful cat involved in the process.... or I go to bed at the end of a long, tiring day and find ive stripped the bed but not put the clean stuff on, probably because a playful cat came along at the wrong moment. :laugh5:
