Re: Cement Powder Bagged Disposal?

I rather think the truth is a lot of the folk around here wouldn't be seen dead with something second hand."
I lived in Warrington in the 60s and nearly everything we owned was second hand.

Re: Walking Britain’s lost railways

"They become cycle routes, they become popular as leisure and commuter routes, and some bright spark then decides po put a bus route, road or tram along it

Bristol - Bath and the Bathgate routes are examples"

How long have buses been using the Bath Bristol cycle path ?

Re: C&G Finishes - Liverpool

That would be worth a few bob now and you could afford a fleet of bikes now if you sold it.
I got i think £300 against a new Triumph Bonneville,if only we new then what we know now.
