more new houses by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 8-Dec-2016
92 houses to be built on land that is at the moment west end nurseries. I didn`t think they owned so much land, hope it puts a smile on his miserable face.

ignorant twats by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 6-Dec-2016
Those absolute pillocks that drive into a yellow hatched area knowing there is little likelihood of their getting out before the lights change. Even worse at the moment with the 590 road works. Police in attendance it said int` liar. Well, I never saw them.

    In the land of the permanent red light, the walking man is king!
    In my travels today I have witnessed some of the most shockingly bad driving I have ever witnessed...well worthy of a prime slot on Road Wars.
    I congratulate the Highways Agency on the destruction of civilisation as we once knew it!

    I did warn worthy gentlemen of this parish some weeks ago. Basically the HA don't give a fuck about Furness. The Quebec St. job was meant to be done in summer but was put back to coincide with Lindal . Ha.

    The usual epithets from the council, apologies, necessary work etc etc...but...they're not looking at the timing of the lights, giving equal time slots to the side streets as the main road? FFS, how hard can it be?? Plus, the backlog goes through a further three sets of lights whose timing is now all to fuck, and town is clogged up as well!

    Agreed WOD ,the phasing of the lights is all to cock. This particular part of the work to install ducts is timed to be completed by Friday p.m. Not sure what comes next.

  • Re: ignorant twats by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 7-Dec-2016
    Can`t help thinking they are polishing a turd. No amount of traffic lights, roundabouts, filters, pinch points or speed limits will make correct a flawed decision. The fact is ulverston now has a ludicrous "bypass" that goes right through the town.

  • Re: ignorant twats by early doors (Member 10235862) on 7-Dec-2016
    We've had said 'bypass ' for nearly 50 years mate.

  • Re: ignorant twats by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 8-Dec-2016
    it must be due for replacement then, just think how much traffic has increased in the last fifty years, installing new central reservations etc will not make it any better.

  • Re: ignorant twats by early doors (Member 10235862) on 8-Dec-2016
    Aye RR.
    Biggest mistake in the history of Ooston. Back in the 60's the people with influence thought a bypass would ruin the town. In fact it would have made it.
    Now much of the land on the old bypass route has been built over.

Ford Park Bistro by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 18-Nov-2016
To the bistro last night for the new chef`s official introduction evening. Really good night, food was excellent, staff pleasant and attentive and place nearly full. Didn`t see many of our local hoi polloi though, the likes of pickers etc were no show. Thanks for the support feller.   
  • Re: Ford Park Bistro by early doors (Member 10235862) on 19-Nov-2016
    Doubt if Pickers would like to be regarded as one of the common people. Or do you misunderstand the term hoi polloi ?

    Bit hard to ignore him when he`s wearing his gay hussar outfit, not keen on these events mesen, too much money leaves town. I know most of the shopkeepers complain about takings being down. The ginger one excepted of course.

  • Re: Ford Park Bistro by zap (Member 10216554) on 24-Nov-2016
    Am with you on that RR. I'd guess the bulk of the money spent this weekend will leave the town. Even in the pubs the money spent on old and filthy will end up in Stockport or elsewhere.

  • Re: Ford Park Bistro by early doors (Member 10235862) on 24-Nov-2016
    ........and if the money stayed in town would it end up in OUR pockets ? There's nothing stopping any local trader from renting a stall and if our local shops can't make money from an extra 10,000 people they should pack up.

  • Re: Ford Park Bistro by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 24-Nov-2016
    Yeah but our shopkeepers are there all year round, open in foul weather, knowing that takings will be thin. The stallholders appear like vultures, clean up then bugger off back to Chorlton cum Hardy or wherever.

  • Re: Ford Park Bistro by early doors (Member 10235862) on 24-Nov-2016
    Not sure what point you're trying to make. If ,as you say ,shop takings are down when 1000's of extra people are in town the shopkeepers are failing to take advantage .
    I'll bet all the pubs and caffs do well ,plus Tesco , Co-op ,Greggs etc. Which local shops do you mean ?

  • Re: Ford Park Bistro by zap (Member 10216554) on 25-Nov-2016
    I don't have the figures so can only guess that the vast majority of tomorrow's throng won't be here to get their hair done, buy a house or otherwise contribute to the "local" economy. I just think that the whole thing is delusional, vis a vis the concept that Ulverston is "thriving", its only 2 days of hustle and bustle, there's another 363 to be considered.

  • Re: Ford Park Bistro by early doors (Member 10235862) on 25-Nov-2016
    I don't get the negativity .

  • Re: Ford Park Bistro by zap (Member 10216554) on 25-Nov-2016
    Just voicing an alternative view. There's another view, very prevalent in town, that if you dare question the desirability/value of the various festivals then you are some sort of spoil sport! If pressed i'd have to say that the Dickfest is probably the best festival. I just don't get the endlessly repeated mantra that its "good for the town".

  • Re: Ford Park Bistro by early doors (Member 10235862) on 25-Nov-2016
    Fair enough old lad and I may say the Dickens is the only one I like - can't stand lantern ,flag etc. and the carnival is ruined by pissheads.
    It's a pity the market has declined so much ,it used to bring people in weekly. Maybe some of this weekend's traders could be persuaded to come more often if they got incentives ?

  • Re: Ford Park Bistro by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 25-Nov-2016
    What happened first, the customers stopped using the market or the stallholders stopped coming? It simply had it`s day if you ask me. What do you actually miss about the market? Goods are now available seven days a week, and damn near round the clock. I might just have a look round tomorrow and do a bit of a census, I think I can confidently predict my dosh will remain in my pocket.

  • Re: Ford Park Bistro by early doors (Member 10235862) on 25-Nov-2016
    What I miss is that the market gave a bit of buzz to the town and some stallholders were characters. Had it's day probably ,as you say . The town is now just a feeding station and dormitory now. Even house prices in the better parts of Barrovia are overtaking Ulverston now.

A590 by early doors (Member 10235862) on 14-Nov-2016
Anyone looking forward to the impending chaos ?
Works starts next week on Quebec St. junction ,followed by Lowfield Bridge the week after. The queue from Lindal will probably reach Ulverston and Tank Square will be gridlocked .
Don't bother going the Coast road ,there's 3 sets of roadworks already.

    Just glanced at the proposed "improvements" to the A590 and the proliferation of traffic lights. We need an Ulverston bypass. It should connect Melton with Lindale in a straight line. Failing that, a barrage.

  • Re: A590 by early doors (Member 10235862) on 17-Nov-2016
    The traffic lights at Quebec St. and NL Road will assist people turning out onto A590 but will inevitably delay traffic on the main road. I think it's quite a good idea to SLOW the traffic through town . HGV's charging down County Road is quite worrying at times.

FORD PARK SUPER HOMES by Bardsea Boy (Member 10303900) on 5-Nov-2016
The Mail informs us that the eight houses being built at Ford Park have more than 100 potential buyers, which is very surprising seeing the slow pace of the Furness property market. The developer appears to be insisting that sales will only be made to purchasers who have no property to sell.
I think fingers good be burnt with this stance unless they are in bed with a housing association.
  
  • Re: FORD PARK SUPER HOMES by early doors (Member 10235862) on 5-Nov-2016
    You can't reserve a house unless you're own property is sold or you have a sale date. It's standard on small new developments. How else could the seller choose between potential buyers ?
    Housing associations ? are you serious ?

  • Re: FORD PARK SUPER HOMES by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 6-Nov-2016
    Had lunch at ford park today. I couldn`t help wondering, as I passed those houses, if any more will be built there. Such an easy way to raise revenue to keep the park going, much easier than recruiting another thousand members which is the current stratagem.

  • Re: FORD PARK SUPER HOMES by early doors (Member 10235862) on 7-Nov-2016
    I'm sorry to say you're right. It's inevitable more land will be taken for housing in the future. There can't be any objections on pure planning grounds.

    Ulverston has become a hot spot for property especially those that are for sale over £150k, however there are many examples of older terraced housing through out Furness which are more affordable from £50k upwards. Compare this to down south where 1st time buyers have no chance to buy until their late 30's or not at all.
    Ulverston is probably the preferred choice for folk that want to move away... more >>

  • Re: £195k by early doors (Member 10235862) on 9-Sep-2016
    The trouble is if you buy a cheap terraced house in Barrovia for £50k it will still only be worth £50k in 10 years time.
    If I was buying a 3-bed semi though ,I would buy in a decent part of Barrow rather than pay over the odds in Ulverston. Let's face it you have to go to Barrow to work and shop anyway. Ulverston is over-rated in my opinion - and I was born here.

    Last year the Evening Mail called Stan laurel a Cumbrian comedian despite him dying about 10 years before Cumbria was invented. Pretty soon nobody will remember we were part of the County Palatine.

    According to the Duchy of Lancaster (Feb 2016) we still ARE part of the County Palatine so, fuck the Liar!!!

Holidays in Barrovia ! by early doors (Member 10235862) on 19-Aug-2016
Holiday Inn Express to be built on the site of the former Barrow Police station. Glad to see something being built in the centre of Barrow rather than on the retail parks.
Premier Inn opening in Ulverston too. The area seems to be slowly catching up with the rest of the known world.
Meanwhile we still await our new supermarket..........

    Ah, the supermarket. Now there`s a topic that died the death. The newfangled Co-op hasn`t really improved things, it`s still a bit of a squeeze getting past other shoppers in the isles. I suppose we will have to wait until national trends indicate that shoppers are favouring big supermarkets once again. Robinsons don`t seem in any hurry to do owt else with the place.

A590 -WTF ??? by early doors (Member 10235862) on 17-Aug-2016
Phantom traffic lights at Newlands garage ,one empty pick-up ,no workmen . WTF goes on ? Traffic right through to Lindal ,neatly joining up with the next roadworks.

    Absolutely outrageous, I got jammed coming into town from Carnforth. I was initially stuck behind a mobile crane, got past and thought "Good, I can get going now" no such bloody luck, crawled into town and had a look into the cordoned off area just by Newlands Farm, couldn`t see owt to justify the lights, no excavation, no workmen, no subsidence, nowt. Answers needed.

    Apparently the problem is now a collapsed manhole. Not going that way today Friday.

    The retards over on the Wezzie Gazette seem to be happy with the A590, at least some of `em think the road is ok but the drivers using it are not ok. All I know is one set of traffic lights and it took me an hour from Bouth turning to Oostun. A dual carriageway would have handled the traffic a lot better.

    It's like a permanent roadworks exhibition . Highways England don't give a fuck about causing delays ,put lights up and piss off

    Lindal dip flooded again today. I suppose the same couldn`t care less pillocks are in charge of this as well as the phantom roadworks.

Poofters by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 2-Aug-2016
So we have to fund queers to the tune of £400 a month `cos they want to bare back ride? I don`t honestly know what the world is coming to. I had to attend FGH recently and the fruit flavoured drink previously available has been economised out, plain water only now. Not a problem you might think, except you need to drink two pints prior to a scan.   
  • Re: Poofters by early doors (Member 10235862) on 2-Aug-2016
    You're not allowed to say 'poofters' . It's arse-bandits.

  • Re: Poofters by zap (Member 10216554) on 2-Aug-2016
    Spot on. You want to avoid aids, stop "shagging" minus condoms. Simples. Its not rocket science FFS, In another world..you don't want to get pregnant...use said condoms or go on the pill. But like I said earlier, vocal minorities will get whatever they want because they scream the loudest.

New co-op by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 29-Jul-2016
Same as the old co-op, bit disappointed really, hoped it would somehow utilise space better and create a bit more room in the aisles. Just a bit of a tart up, corporate identity is it called?   
  • Re: New co-op by early doors (Member 10235862) on 30-Jul-2016
    The Coop missed the boat when Woolys closed . I like Tesco stores but the Ulverston one is just shite ,poor selection ,dopey staff ,dirty floor usually.

  • Re: New co-op by early doors (Member 10235862) on 1-Aug-2016
    called in tonight ,better lighting etc. and good stock levels . Busy but got served quickly. better than Tesco anyway.

  • Re: New co-op by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 1-Aug-2016
    Oh yes, much better than Tesco,
