Norman by zap (Member 10216554) on 17-Sep-2017
A plaque is to be unveiled at Ullswater remembering Norman Birkett's role in saving it from Manchester Corporation.i've long thought that Ulverston has shamefully neglected Birkett, the town's most illustrious son bar none. There's Birkett Drive, that's it. A bust of him in t'Coro would do nicely. Anyone else a fan?   
  • Re: Norman by early doors (Member 10235862) on 17-Sep-2017
    I was always told he went to the Grammar School but it was Barrow Grammar School . Interesting read on Wikipedia. Birkett Drive though ,the most joyless ,treeless, featureless road in town.Not even a litter bin.

  • Re: Norman by zap (Member 10216554) on 18-Sep-2017
    His biography says he went to Wesleyan Day School in Ulverston then to the Higher Grade School in Barrow.

  • Re: Norman by early doors (Member 10235862) on 18-Sep-2017
    Higher Grade School was/is just off Schneider Square . At the time that would be the grammar school I guess ,before the other one was built on Park Drive.

  • Re: Norman by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 18-Sep-2017
    Seem to think it`s nowt but a pile of rubble now, it was always Alfred Barrow Secondary School, I remember last time I went up Ramsden st seeing a pile of bricks. Me mam always referred to that part of Duke st as higher grade hill. It was on a par with Holker st school but you didn`t get Dai Healey beating the shit out of you.

  • Re: Norman by early doors (Member 10235862) on 18-Sep-2017
    Some of it has been demolished but the original buildings from c.1890 are listed. Being converted to a health centre I think ?
    Yes ,some people still call it Higher Grade Hill.

  • Re: Norman by zap (Member 10216554) on 18-Sep-2017
    According to the biog the school " had the advantages of a technical institute with those of a secondary modern school. There was provision for lessons in such subjects as metallurgy, pattern making, turning, fitting, forging, engineering, plumbing and sanitation."

Big Kings changes to a brasserie, banks going to be a wine bar/restaurant, soon there will be nowhere to get a pint and a pie, we need to apply for a preservation order for the town centre before it`s too late

    Tell me where you can get a pie (just a pie ) in a pub these days .

    Well I wouldn`t know, I don`t eat pies, not nowadays, but I remember getting a pie from Parkinson`s and eating it in the Globe, Ronnie Brown used to provide me with a plate, knife and fork.

  • Re: Chelsea, Cumbria by early doors (Member 10235862) on 12-Sep-2017
    Aye lad ,I wish we could do that now. A Parkinson's pie would be heaven but to eat it in a pub would be nirvana.

    Used to do it regular, every Saturday afternoon in the Globe. A few pints and a bag of Parky's pork pies. O happy day.

  • Re: Chelsea, Cumbria by early doors (Member 10235862) on 13-Sep-2017
    aye but now these pubs want to sell you 'home-made ' pie and all the trimmings for £13-95.

    I usedto go through to The Borough on Dalton Square in Lancaster. They served proper steak and kidney puddings, made with suet. Yes, about £12 but worth every penny plus the train fare.

beehive development by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 7-Sep-2017
The luddites are at it again, the selfish moneygrubbing kus brigade, led by the mustachioed one, are whining about the proposed development at the beehive. It would " detract from the vitality of the town centre" what a load of bollocks. Same old tosh reiterated every time a new shop opens, been the same since walter willsons first moved in. If I ever put my house on the market it will not be with tynemouth.

    It goes back further than W.Wilson . The same selfish arguments were put forward in the early 1960's re the A590. The vested interests didn't want a proper bypass hence we now have a dual c/way thundering through the town. I know I'm repeating myself but they thought a bypass would kill Ulverston - in fact it would have enhanced it.

    It`s a sobering thought, how one man with vested interest can, as a councillor (plus wifey councillor) lead an orchestrated campaign to deprive the town of what could have been a nice asset. I think Robinsons won in the end but the steam went out of the campaign in the light of the available statistics at the time that indicated the large supermarkets were going out of favour. Interesting then tha... more >>

    I just get the feeling this supermarket palaver is turning into another Morecambe Bay barrage. Committees/people will talk about it for years and nowt will get done. I repeat myself too - out of all the retail outlets in the town PERHAPS 3 or 4 MIGHT be affected by new supermarkets.where is this "vibrant" town centre I read about?

  • Re: beehive development by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 8-Sep-2017
    What particularly riles me is the way they claim to be acting in the best interests of the town when the truth is they are only thinking of their own interests. Specialton.

  • Re: beehive development by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 8-Sep-2017
    Not very vibrant on a Saturday with the main street closed to traffic and only a couple of stalls bothering to turn up, are the town council actively pursuing market traders throughout lancashire and inviting them to trade here on Saturday? I think there is a "fest" this weekend? will a retail park at the Beehive kill off the fests as well?

  • Re: beehive development by early doors (Member 10235862) on 8-Sep-2017
    I was talking to one of the developer's staff and he confirmed Aldi & M&S are definitely coming ( subject to planning permission ). Robinsons must be kicking themselves. If Beehive comes off ,there will be two choices for the brewery - residential or demolition.

  • Re: beehive development by zap (Member 10216554) on 8-Sep-2017
    Spot on RR. As previously stated the majority of those advocating Specialton seem to be of the "how dare you even think of despoiling this beautiful 'lake district' town" stripe. They live in their own little festival infested, oh so quaint bubble. What real people want and need doesn't seem to enter the equation.

  • Re: beehive development by twister (Member 10266532) on 8-Sep-2017
    How come Sainsbury were not allowed PP yet Aldi and M&S are being allowed to open there, stinks a bit to me. As Jim Royle might have said, Specialton my arse.

  • Re: beehive development by early doors (Member 10235862) on 8-Sep-2017
    Agreed twister. The local councillors on SLDC were against Sainsbury on traffic grounds but can't be seen to object to the blue-light hub. In my opinion the site will be overloaded with the new proposal and may generate just as much as traffic .
    Bear in mind though ,the supermarkets have not been granted pp yet.

  • Re: beehive development by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 8-Sep-2017
    Did Sainsbury`s application include the same traffic control measures? I can`t remember now but I don`t think they did. Perhaps Sainsburys were a bit more sensitive to public opinion, ( perhaps perceived to be the luddites ) and bowed out gracefully. Aldi might be a bit more aggressive and put up a better fight, the Beehive location is just about ok, any further away and you might as well go to ba... more >>

  • Re: beehive development by zap (Member 10216554) on 8-Sep-2017
    And that' summat else..."local" councillors, there are 18 councillors on SLDC planning committee, only 3 are from Ulverston, the others are from Kendal, Ambleside, Arnside and even over in Proper Yorkshire at Sedbergh. Whatever else SLDC is, it isn't "local" government by any stretch. Time for a Furness unitary authority I think.

  • Re: beehive development by early doors (Member 10235862) on 8-Sep-2017
    Sainsbury proposal included traffic lights but obviously not the special lane exit for blue light vehicles. I would have preferred Sainsers as they sell non-food items you can't get in town.
    As I've said before I reckon these plans are too intensive. It's going to be hugely popular with the natives simply because of the parking but ,again ,I don't think 150 spaces is enough for peak times. Booth... more >>

    A good sized car park is vital, If I go to the Beehive Aldi and can`t get on the car park I`ll go to barrovia because I`ll be in the car doing a "big shop" owt else I can get from central co-op, much as I hate the place, overall though I would have preferred a shopping centre ont brewery

Several locals have vouced their opinions about it and in true FB style are now being severely mauled forthem. So gentlemen, are we for it, agin it or in the throes of militant apathy?

    Seems most of the posters are from Barrovia . I recognise many of the names from past skirmishes !!

    Against it.Dead against it. That building is ours, we, and generations before us, paid for it. I`d rather see it flattened and made into a car park. Why should we have to hand it over to house a whole lot of trouble for the town, these wretched junkies got themselves into the state they now find themselves in, if "society" has to rehabilitate them then at the very least they should contribute towa... more >>

    I think apart from any other consideration it's too big a development for such a compact area. There's a lot of virtue signalling going on on t'liars FB BUT I think it's inevitable that many of the beneficiaries of this scheme will have the usual substance abuse issues. Plonking them down in such a small town centre will cause problems whatever the high ideals behind the scheme. So...no.

    Seems that some councils never learn. A few years ago seaside guest houses were only too pleased to accept dhss, councils were happy to send their homeless to the guest houses. Fast forward a few years and now look at those areas, did themselves no favours and the landlords have lived to regret what was perceived as easy money.

what`s the world coming to by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 1-Sep-2017
Some clot falls off his bicycle at nine o clock at night on a country lane and the police close it off for four hours while they carry out an investigation, wtf?   
  • Re: what`s the world coming to by early doors (Member 10235862) on 1-Sep-2017
    I suppose the guy could have died from his serious head injuries so then it becomes a crime scene. Could have been another person or vehicle involved. Fucking annoying though !!

  • Re: what`s the world coming to by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 1-Sep-2017
    I blame Richard Brunstrom, some time chief constable of south wales. As a motor cycle hater he did his level best to exact the maximum disruption out of any incident involving a motorcycle, insisting that every incident was a potential crime scene. The chief constables that followed him were reluctant to return things back to the way they used to be. How many accidents turned out to be murder?

Definitely indefinite by zap (Member 10216554) on 31-Aug-2017
What is it wi' t'liar and the use of the definite/indefinite articles? Did you know..according to tonight's online effort "a town" is having a beer festival? Wonder where that could be? My favourite of recent weeks was "the south cumbrian" was spared jail. But never forget these are the "journalists" who invented "the" Hoad.   
  • Re: Definitely indefinite by early doors (Member 10235862) on 31-Aug-2017
    My fave is the ' a submarine was launched at a Cumbrian shipyard ' ???
    As regards Hoad ,plenty of Ulverstonians refer to it as 'The Hoad ' ,like people say I went to 'The Asda '. It may be incorret but it is in common parlance.

  • Re: Definitely indefinite by early doors (Member 10235862) on 1-Sep-2017
    Today - 'a Lake District pass will close for 7 weeks ' - just name it !

  • Re: Definitely indefinite by zap (Member 10216554) on 1-Sep-2017
    They didn't manage to squeeze "cumbrian" in then? Scumbrian wazzocks.

Great!! by zap (Member 10216554) on 26-Aug-2017
Just watched "Hobson's Choice" on telly. Charles Laughton, John Mills and the wonderfully named Brenda de Banzie. Albert Tatlock was there too. Fair took me back to wet Sunday afternoons on Priory Road. Absolute treat of a film.   
  • Re: Great!! by early doors (Member 10235862) on 26-Aug-2017
    Aye a reet gradely film. Hope you also noticed Sybil Fawlty and Private Fraser.

  • Re: Great!! by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 28-Aug-2017
    Good channel for nostalgia fans,That`s Lancashire/Talking Pictures

  • Re: Great!! by zap (Member 10216554) on 28-Aug-2017
    Yup, that's the one. First time I' d come across it and will be going back. Saturday night telly is dire.

  • Re: Great!! by early doors (Member 10235862) on 28-Aug-2017
    Ch.343 on Sky or 81 on Freeview try Talking Pictures. Old British movies like Inn For Trouble with the redoubtable Peggy Mount.

  • Re: Great!! by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 28-Aug-2017
    And david kossoff and leslie phillipps. (I say, ding dong). Classic stuff, better than all those goddam quiz shows and soaps that infest the main channels. Been watching the original Taggart on saturday nights with Mark Mcmanus, also the old silent witness episodes with the delicious emilia fox.

  • Re: Great!! by zap (Member 10216554) on 29-Aug-2017
    Dating ourselves now gentlemen! Got to admit I often listen to Hhhhhancock's Half Hour on R4 extra."look 'ere mush"!

  • Re: Great!! by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 29-Aug-2017
    Ah, R4extra, I was listening to the Clitheroe Kid yesterday, funny thing, he didn`t sound like I remembered him so I did a quick Google to see if he had been replaced but no, same lile feller. Getting like that Jethro Tull track on here, "Let`s go livin` in the past!"

knock and run policy by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 25-Aug-2017
Is there some sort of unofficial competition among postmen to see who can get back to the post office with as many undelivered parcels as possible? Despite having a clearly visible doorbell they seem to favour knocking softly and then scarpering before even mo farah could get to the door. Then there is the delightful collection area, ring and wait. and wait, punishment for not answering the door q... more >>   
  • Re: knock and run policy by zap (Member 10216554) on 25-Aug-2017
    Think yersel' lucky somebody sends you parcels! I usually get leaflets for funeral plans, mail for the previous occupier and bills.

phone mast by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 20-Aug-2017
It seems there is nothing that pickers won`t complain about, not content with stifling development and commerce he now wants to stop telecommunications, his cohorts are quite happy to see it installed on urswick road though. It`s only a glorified lamp post after all, why all the fuss?   
  • Re: phone mast by early doors (Member 10235862) on 20-Aug-2017
    it's not on Urswick Road it's going to be on Central Drive next to McColl's. It's going to be about 3 lamp-posts high. Apparently if you stand within 20 feet of it you will be turned to stone.

  • Re: phone mast by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 20-Aug-2017
    Aye, I know, they (pickers and co) want to stop it going up on central drive, and suggest urswick road as an alternative, classic nimby.

  • Re: phone mast by early doors (Member 10235862) on 20-Aug-2017
    Vodafone have to pay rent to the landowner to site a mast ,I know various companies pay a rent to the Roxy owners. So ,possibly ,SLDC will make money from the Central Drive site but maybe not in other locations ?

  • Re: phone mast by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 21-Aug-2017
    Possibly so, Rediffusion used to pay if their cabling crossed your property. I just don`t see any reason why it can`t go on the corner there. As long as it`s not wood it won`t get torched (like the playground did)

Lowther van sales by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 14-Aug-2017
Not a lot of stock on the yard these days, wonder if he is packing it in. Probably follow Gillam`s example and build on the site, squeeze a few on the yard and a few more once the garage is demolished   
  • Re: Lowther van sales by early doors (Member 10235862) on 14-Aug-2017
    aye, ditto for Tarnside Garage

  • Re: Lowther van sales by zap (Member 10216554) on 14-Aug-2017
    Made a good job of Tarnside.

    Nice if you can afford`em

  • Re: Lowther van sales by zap (Member 10216554) on 15-Aug-2017
    True. It'll likely turn into a mini Guildford.

  • Re: Lowther van sales by early doors (Member 10235862) on 15-Aug-2017

    Not sure if there's room for a tube underneath Specialton.though we could mebbe manage a Tower Hill Station!

  • Re: Lowther van sales by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 17-Aug-2017
    It`s taking so long to fettle t`beck they could have done a tube as well.
