  1. Out in the sticks where there is no pavement or kerb stones, the road surface is now so high and narrow that you can't get two cars passing without one having to drop off the edge. There have been cases of this resulting in vans tipping over on their sides. Amey should've maintained the width of the road, and taken off enough depth of old surface to keep the levels the same, instead of going for the cheapest option.
  2. Some atheists are certainly less presumptive when it comes to fact/fiction. But there will be some religious people who also try to research things beyond the bible. But are they more likely to delve deeper in search of the answer, rather than accepting what is put before them?
  3. Yeah, I think they've been doing a big review of which postboxes are used the most. There's a couple out near us in S6 that have been blocked up similarly. Inevitable really, when you think how communication has changed over the years from post to email.
  4. The Crown and Glove is roughly 248 metres above sea level. The Old Horns is 263 metres above sea level. Not much in it, and there are higher points away from buildings in both areas. https://www.freemaptools.com/elevation-finder.htm Edit: The wind turbines out on Riggs High Road are 316 metres above sea level, if this is still classed as Stannington. And the highest part of Kirk Edge Road is 348 metres above sea level.
  5. Any update on the Shoulder of Mutton? I've been going in at lunchtimes occasionally, and the new owners have been doing great food and beer. But I understand they're leaving and new people are coming in?
  6. Welcome to Sheffield! It's a great place to live. Just down the road from you is Endcliffe Park, which is great for running, but for 10-15km you may want to head west along the Porter Brook river, there is a good path most of the way. You may like to join a running club so that you can get out with other people who will know lots of different routes. Hallamshire Harriers is a good club, as is Steel City Striders, but there are lots of others. There are lots of great places to eat - far too many to list - it really just depends what you like and what is your budget. Good luck with the move!
  7. Piskeymax, I have heard from two totally unrelated sources, without me prompting, hence why I posted again. Often in my experience the staff are the last ones to know, although I admire your confidence in Sainsburys management to do the right thing. Personally, I love it in there. The produce is a bit more expensive but I think it's worth it to have so much under one roof, a good Home and clothing section too, and a really good café.
  8. I've heard from two different sources that the big Sainsbury's at Wadsley Bridge is closing. Anyone heard anything?
  9. Someone told me that Sainsbury's is closing down soon. Any truth in that? I know it never really seems busy.
  10. I'm not sure if the link is going to work, due to the security settings of the Facebook group, but here is apparently a photograph of the columns in present day, out near Boots Folly tower, near Strines. https://www.facebook.com/groups/162495801848/permalink/10153121130631849/
  11. Brunswick Chapel was apparently bombed during the war, and the stone pillars were moved by Henry Boot to a field out near Strines, near Boots Folly tower, so that they could be re-used if it was ever rebuilt. It never was, so the pillars are still out near Bradfield!
  12. Just an update for people, I bought the Midnight Sun system. It was OK for 2 years but then went wrong. it transpired it was never actually working properly, as proven by my electricity readings. I paid on credit card, so made a claim, and got all my money back. So if you bought the Midnight Sun and aren't happy, try a claim under Section 75 of the Consumer Credit Act 1974. my credit card company said no at first, but paid out eventually. :-)
  13. Is that what they say? Blimey, all these years I thought it was "Hell hath no fury like a woman's corns!"
  14. Me too! Gutted to say the least. I'm looking at mobile broadband solutions.
  15. SO, are you saying that the Allies shouldn't have taken Hitler to task? Violence in the name of good sometimes needs to happen. In this case, I would not have punched the man, but would have used reasonable force to wrestle him to the ground while someone called the police.
