All hands to the pump!

It’s really getting busy for top local history wonks Dave Moore, Chris Pattison and their Freinds of Sandfields Pumping Station campaign group, who seem to be really getting somewhere with this fantastic Victorian edifice; not only has their attention prompted the fixing of the roof recently, but the listing status of the building is now under review too.

Stolen Landrover – please keep an eye out, folks

I’ve been contacted by reader Gemma Clarke on behalf of her pal Rebecca Sketchley King, who’s asked if I could possibly request readers look out for her stolen Black Landcover Defender, which was taken from Erdington Road, Aldridge tonight (Monday, 20th October 2014) between 7:40 and 7:55pm.

Building your new transport network… in 1974

I’m hoping some of the bus and rail enthusiasts can help with this one – a few weeks ago I picked up a 40 year old bus route map for Walsall, Aldridge Lichfield, Brownhills and Cannock, and it’s an interesting little time capsule all of it’s own.
