  1. AstraZeneca, who are manufacturing the vaccine, and Oxford University will need to ensure that they are covered against litigation resulting from any unpredicted adverse effects. The development of any pharmaceutical product normally takes far longer than is being allowed for this vaccine due to the numerous safety tests, clinical trials & submissions for approval.
  2. Including Sorby Hall, my former home, which has now sadly also been demolished ๐Ÿ™‚ We wandered up there today and were amazed that we'd never noticed it before. So is this pond and surrounding greenery now just a 'feature' for the sole enjoyment of the occupants of the flats?
  3. Thanks guys. Long shot - don't suppose anyone knows who owned this company at that time?
  4. The name of the company escapes me. Can anyone help me out? Thanks.
  5. Still at Crowden today. This is a link to the best photos of it I've seen so far: https://twitter.com/gregfjbaker/status/1293263395483987969?s=20
  6. Three actually. Two upstairs & one down. Not so long ago there were four. The cafe around the corner on Fitzwilliam Gate, now The Cabin, belonged to Atkinsons.
  7. For what it's worth we had something similar with our current house in the Peak District. We bought it on the understanding that it was freehold but then, after living there for a year or so, we received a hand-scrawled note through the post demanding payments for unpaid Chief Rent. Our solicitor suggested we pay it as the amounts were relatively small, which we did. After a while the demands dried up and so did our payments. We suspect this was some ancient arrangement which is no longer upheld by the law once the person has died.
  8. He'll be teaming up with Edgar Froese to create some heavenly tunes ๐Ÿ˜Ž
  9. So you'll all not be watching next week then? Personally I enjoyed it, from an educational standpoint. Don't think it was ever intended to be a period drama. The juxtaposition of old & new helps to emphasise what we all take for granted nowadays.
  10. I seem to remember living at no. 219 (or thereabouts) - there was a bus-stop right outside anyway - and the shop was on the corner just above our house.
  11. Yes thanks. I'm reminded of a corner shop up Ellesmere Road above Burngreave in the late 70's which seemed to sell absolutely everything. My house-mate at the time (we were in student digs, a long way out) thought it was great that they sold jars of sauerkraut which up until then he'd only ever seen in Germany!
  12. Follows the Ardern family through 100 years of keeping a corner shop in Sheffield. Does anyone know whereabouts it's being filmed?
  13. Brill! Thanks for that. Been travelling down memory lane for the last two hours!
  14. Likewise John Lewis in the city centre.
