NO PASA NADA by early doors (Member 10235862) on 21-Sep-2016
WTF is going on in Ulverston ? Fuck all by the look of it ,no movement on the brewery ,or the Premier Inn ,or the 3 junction improvements promised this year.
What happens to schemes in this town - it's like they vanish into a black hole ?
  
  • Re: NO PASA NADA by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 21-Sep-2016
    WE are getting a craft beer brewery and a gin distillery, as to the supermarket, well, it all got passed but then Robinsons got jittery after a report that concluded the big supermarkets were out of favour with the fickle public. I just wish they had at least demolished the brewery to end any attempts to turn it into a pseuds gallery.

  • Re: NO PASA NADA by early doors (Member 10235862) on 21-Sep-2016
    More and more business premises in Ulverston being turned into flats etc. ,more people ,more spending power but nowhere in town for them to spend that money. It's now a dormitory town,

  • Re: NO PASA NADA by zap (Member 10216554) on 22-Sep-2016
    ED is right. HSBC is closing and i went to town to pay a bill at TSB yesterday - only to find its closed on Wednesdays now.no cop shop, courts went years ago, and a plethora of caffs, restaurants and eztate agents. Another few steps on the road to Grasmere!

  • Re: NO PASA NADA by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 22-Sep-2016
    Well , we are a festival town after all dontcha know, people come here to festival, not to shop, if you want owt nowadays you order it on line and a girt van arrives and blocks the street for ten minutes while you microscopically inspect your wood pigeon eggs and lambs testicles. And you can always get stuff at the factory shop. Unless, that is, you are like me and forget it`s there until you are ... more >>

    And guess what...the liar says says the new italian caff on t'Gill is full of Ulverston quirkiness! There must be a way out of all this shite

  • Re: NO PASA NADA by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 27-Sep-2016
    It would be nice to see some real oostun quirk visited upon this twee lile caff. A few oostonians in their milking parlour attire, like spattered wellies, encrusted breeks, vintage milk stained jackets and ratting caps, all sitting down to a nice mug of extra strong tea, and dunking egg and bacon butties into it, a couple of jack russells nipping at the heels of the hoi polloi wouldn`t go amiss.

£195k by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 6-Sep-2016
For a two bedroom semi. Jesus. oostun is getting more expensive than chelsea.   
  • Re: £195k by zap (Member 10216554) on 6-Sep-2016
    But thats the point...Ooston is fast becoming a London suburb. Those which the Gods would destroy they first turn into Croydon!

    I look forward to homes under the hammer visiting us, Martin simpering while howard whitaker sells the first derek barnes DB8 to go for 200k. Any chance of the common working man getting a semi d in oostun have vanished. Could be swarty or dalton for me now.

  • Re: £195k by Bardsea Boy (Member 10303900) on 9-Sep-2016
    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.

  • Re: £195k by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 10-Sep-2016
    Nice bungalow going cheap in Steel st., wonder if it`s been flooded? It`s going for auction though, darn sarf, so could be silly money if it`s sold as "a lake district property" near the sea.

  • Re: £195k by early doors (Member 10235862) on 10-Sep-2016
    it's stretching it a bit to call it a bungalow ,wasn't this a mission hall or summatt ?
    It's damp damaged too.
    The plot may be big enough fro 2 terraced houses after demolishing said 'bungalow'

  • Re: £195k by zap (Member 10216554) on 10-Sep-2016
    Pisses me right off..all that "Lake District" shite.it just attracts more and more escapees from darn sarf, our nearest "lake" is Morecambe Bay FFS.

    Millomites are south cumbrians, amongst other faults.i just wonder what's wrong with plain old Furness.maybe it has connotations of Barrovia.or mebbe them that runs ooston (or think they do) are just pretentious fakes.

How much longer by zap (Member 10216554) on 28-Aug-2016
Before robinsons are prosecuted under the Trad3s Description Act? Todays offer "Hartleys Cumbria way, Lakeland Golden Ale". Its not Hartleys, certainly not "cumbrian" and its manufactered in Stockport. Wrong all round

    Ralph Spours. Located in the picturesque market town of Ulverston, South Cumbria .

    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.

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..........
  
  • Re: Holidays in Barrovia ! by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 19-Aug-2016
    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.   
  • Re: A590 -WTF ??? by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 17-Aug-2016
    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.

  • Re: A590 -WTF ??? by early doors (Member 10235862) on 19-Aug-2016
    Apparently the problem is now a collapsed manhole. Not going that way today Friday.

  • Re: A590 -WTF ??? by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 19-Aug-2016
    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.

  • Re: A590 -WTF ??? by early doors (Member 10235862) on 20-Aug-2016
    It's like a permanent roadworks exhibition . Highways England don't give a fuck about causing delays ,put lights up and piss off

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.

    You're not allowed to say 'poofters' . It's arse-bandits.

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?

There`s Dalton with a flagship Co-op and the festival town, even after the alterations, with a cramped and claustrophobic store.

  • Re: stone cross by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 15-Jun-2016
    I can`t see me moving in up there, perhaps the developer is pinning his hopes on a big influx of workers as the projected Glaxo expansion gets under way. I don`t know if any figures are available but once the construction is over Glaxo have a habit of only employing low numbers of staff, plant is designed to be as automatic and computer controlled as possible.

  • Re: stone cross by early doors (Member 10235862) on 15-Jun-2016
    I don't think Persimmon are 'pinning their hopes ' on any particular group of people. Ulverston is perceived as a desirable place to live /retire/invest and is relatively cheap compared to the Lakes.
    GSK job levels post-construction will be quite low ,as you say ,and mostly high-end jobs.

    By the way ,in recent weeks I have called in Tesco inRawlinson St. Barrovia and Tesco Metro by Roose station. Both are excellent and much better than the Ulverston branch which is usually shit up and you can't get served.
