Re: MYSTERY OBJECTS

Profuse apologies for leaving you hanging with this one. Our Switch On event consumed my attention over the weekend and Monday morning. When I thought I'd be slackening off, the rain came - generating a fresh set of issues for me to deal with... I was going to tease you with a picture clue... http:/...

Re: FORGOTTEN CORNERS

I've wondered about the cast iron pipe in Stocks Beck, Stanley -and have taken pictures of it from time to time... are you going to post it in Mystery Objects?

Me and Tom put the structure in for Santa's Grotto, part of Switch On Saturday. This is work in progress - less than 12 hours before Santa arrives!

I don't know about a forestry link, but thinking of images of the Germanic Wars, there could well be.

Re: FORGOTTEN CORNERS

Skipton to Manchester, and the service gives a fast journey between Barlick and Burnley as well.

For Southport nowadays you'd catch the 280 to Preston and change there.

Re: MYSTERY OBJECTS

Sorry, none of the above, humorous or otherwise, correct.

Surprised this hasn't been cracked yet, but maybe someone's maintaining a holy silence?

Re: ENERGY MATTERS

Meanwhile, us youngsters are grappling with inflating energy prices... Our fixed rate tariff runs out at the end of this month and I've been checking out what's on offer. Cheapest rate was for a 12 month fix, but we chose a near 3 year fix which was a little more expensive. This gives us a hedge aga...

Re: FORGOTTEN CORNERS

Thank you deebee; looking at the first picture, I'd worked out it was very recent. Bang up to date is brilliant!

Hope you are OK with me posting one of these on facebook, with a link to this page.

Re: WATERY MATTERS 2016

Very true Tizer. We had some idiots driving through the water during Earby's flood in September creating bow waves that overcame sandbag defences. It's one of the things we try and guard against with road closures and barriers.

Re: WATERY MATTERS 2016

Thanks Stanley. Consultants are working on the problem of flooding in Earby but it'll be the middle of next year before we have a report. The sort of things they'll be looking at include upstream storage (creating washlands), perhaps a diversion of Earby Beck to below the town in flood conditions, m...

Just one of the hen huts is still standing where it was in this photo; it's the one closest to Bankfield Shed near the canal (it can be seen from the canal if you walk on the towpath nowadays).
