  3. What's the fascination in a cave ?

    Why on earth anyone would want to go down there is way beyond my comprehension too as is why the the kids parents allowed them to go. But the fact is they did and now they are all stuck.... hope to god they all get out safe and all the rescuers are ok too as it's so terrible. Maybe a very good lesson to be learned for others who may want to venture into those caves or others ...STAY OUT !!!
  4. WBC You're joking!

    If it was me Bill I'd rant and rave on the media sites and also across social networking too and I wouldn't pay the fine. Although saying that I don't think I'd have parked over the white lines in an near empty carpark but then again I am quite paranoid about parking within the bays in spaces anywhere probably cos one of out car does only just fit. In your case if the lines weren't clearly visible then you should deffo contest it but then again without any photo evidence you might fail:( Surely the ticket slappers should show some leniency in a near empty carpark. Some years back I saw a WBC traffic warden slapping a ticket on a car in the lower Stockton Heath Forge car park (near the church end). I asked why he was ticketing the car and he said the wheel was over the white line. It was the ONLY car in the lower car park for god sake. I was disgusted and told the jobsworth that. I have also seen them ticket another lonesome car for not displaying a ticket and the elderly person was so upset as the penalty was half their weeks pension but once written they said it couldn't be cancelled. I sometimes wish I was a parking enforcement officer as I'd use my brain cells and if someone deserved to be ticketed they would get one but like in your case on an empty car park or just a mistake I would turn a blind eye as everyone can make the odd mistake.

    I often go up to Hill Cliffe on sunny day to look at the view which stretches for miles when it's a clear day. You can easily see Winter Hill from up there too...which is on fire Busy time for the fire service at the moment..... https://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/news/greater-manchester-news/gallery/pictures-winter-hill-fire-14843097

  8. Heatwave -

    So what colour were your exposed parts before you managed to get a nice even white colour

    My dads weather station in his garden was showing 37 degrees on Tuesday too Bill. Blummin' hot that eh? Hope you got all your jobs done
  10. Heatwave -

    Good advice Algy. It was so hot yesterday that tar in a pavement near us was actually melting. It was like a joining strip not the actual stony pavement. I didn't notice until I stood on it and my shoe stuck and came off. Yes the pavement was hot with a bare foot lol. Sods law I had my favourite comfy and fairly new WHITE soled summer shoes on. I managed to immediately scrape some of the melted tar out of the tread pattern with a strong piece of plastic then got a bit more off later with a knife after it hardened but there's no way I can get it all off. On the positive side though at least it was me who stood on it and not my dog
  11. Bins

    Thinking about it...no I wouldn't fancy that job Asp especially in this heat with fortnightly bin collections (wiffy or what !!) It was bad enough looking through bags in my own black bin when I thought I'd accidentally thrown my house keys in it. What made it worse after looking through the bin I found them in my work coat pocket even though I'd looked there first..clearly not well enough
  12. Interesting and thanks for the info Confused52
  13. Yes it looks a bit of a mess these days Bill but I certainly wouldn't want to see it go. I'll chain myself to it if they ever do decided to knock it down and the same goes for the wonky roof building next to it. I agree that owners should NOT be just allowed to just sit on a building and leave it to go derelict though. The council do have powers to stop them doing that as mentioned previously and they can force action especially in a conservation area (and Bridge Street and the Packet House building are all part of the conservation area..and nationally/locally listed)...but for some reason the Council never seem to take real action an force owners to maintain or repair. I guess they have their reasons though....
  14. It's been like that for a couple of years now PJ. I seem to remember Algy posting a photo when the guttering and brickwork first came loose and fell off after a heavy storm and high winds and bugger all has been done to put it right by the owners since. Saying that prior to the storm and that damage the upper windows were broken and some left open for a long time before that too letting in the elements and pigeons etc ..there are pics of that too. I had the land registry docs for it but lost them when my hard drive died a sudden death last year but at the time (from memory) it was owned by the same person who owned the go carting place down Slutchers Lane. Guess it's changed hands now and someone else will be sitting on it waiting for it to fall down or be bulldozed due to 'health & safety' thus freeing up the land space for a heafty sales profit. Ah well....
