Is that the more fashionable end of The Potteries?
Is there a fashionable end of the Potteries?
Where the buildings only have one smashed window.
I thought the potteries came to a fashionable end in the 1930's.
I would like to see a streamlined Duchess running and a replica K2 for the West Highland Line so I would go back to last Friday having memorised that evening's winning Euro Millions numbers. On Monday I would be on the phone to the NRM!

A weekend it is- I'll bring the oatcakes for snappin
Good call Feller, gorrer av' summ snap....
OK, time for a (slightly embarrassing) personal confession - in all the years that I have been spending time in Staffycher, I have never eaten an Oatcake.

If it wasn't Beeching it would have been A. Nother.
Climbing Upton Scudamore Bank behind a Crompton then to the Isle of Wight on the Southsea
Dawlish behind a Peak at the height of summer
But to be in the engines of Manxman again, watch those pressures rise and fall as I turned the handwheels.........
