Aye, finished in 2005 so it was a few years ago. When the Stocksbridge bypass opened May 1988 it ended the need to negotiate going through Hillsbro.

In this case, ignore the directions of an officer in uniform at your peril.
i was not asking about whether or not to obey the police. i wasd asking about the lackies paid or otherwise of what is essentially a business

Maybe just the stretch between Cherry St and Charlotte Road?
Shoreham St doesn't get closed on match days

If Angel1's truck is a very large one and he wants to get his own back on the inconsiderate parking then perhaps a television programme could be made about this, and screened in place of the end of a Wednesday match. Just need a title for this episode...
