October 21, In writing this post I do not wish to start a debate on the subject of strikes and industrial action. My interest is in the people and the cutting edge work they did after a dispute. In June and July there was a dispute at the Nottingham Post which resulted in some redundancy. A group of these workers got together and put up some of their redundancy money to start a free newspaper that would be funded by advertising. The free paper was called Info. This was produced in the very early days of free newspapers. Now we are inundated with them and free local magazines. My dad was one of the people who worked on Info.
If you’ll excuse the mixed metaphors, while we will keep one foot firmly in the past as we follow the route along the Nottingham Canal, we will have the other firmly planted in the present and as will become obvious in Part 4, we will also have at least one eye on the future. But in years to come, that too will be a part of history. Resuming our walk on Castle Boulevard near the Brewhouse Yard Museum we must turn right into Wilford Street to reach the canal and here we can see the first evidence of the regeneration in this part of the city that has been undertaken in recent times in the offices of the Nottingham Evening Post.
The newspaper offices were previously in a building dating from the s on the corner of Forman Street and South Sherwood Street. Originally built for a large printing business and the Guardian Journal, the Post’s forerunner it was demolished to be replaced by the Corner House right. Wherever you look these days in the centre of Nottingham there seems to be building work in progress but reflected in the glass of the new offices above is the older architecture of the Blood Donor Centre in Castle House on Castle Boulevard.

An archive of interviews, reviews, features, news stories, etc. Stephen Tompkinson plays the lead character. I wanted to film it at the edge of Sneinton near the Racecourse, where you are in the city but just a step away from all these fields. I wrote for him years ago when I did Minder, when I was first starting out. He has such an edge to him.
We had the read-through last week and he was astonishing. And he does a fantastic Nottingham accent. But I read a few of his lines and sent them back to him and he used that. He was going to try to do a Nottingham accent and in the end he just gave up. It is a revisiting of that environment but it has very different concerns. Common As Muck was about spiritual dirt versus actual dirt.
This is about isolation.

Well you can thank Carnforth band Massive Wagons for that and their bid for musical fame, not just in the North West, but throughout the country and beyond. But who exactly are Massive Wagons? They are a five-piece anthemic rock act, led by charismatic frontman Baz Mills, formed in in their hometown of Carnforth, near Lancaster, and have become something of a mainstay in the rock scene since. Baz explained their rise through the rock and roll ranks: The finished mural on the side of The Pub in China Street, Lancaster “It’s been a lot of hard slog over the first six or seven years.
A new album – Full Nelson – is out in August through them. It will probably be the biggest thing we’ve done so far, in terms of albums. It’s our fourth album. Ready to start work on the mural in Lancaster “They did some research and there has never been a Lancaster band that has ever charted an album apparently. So they want to go down that route. They want to try and get Lancaster behind the pre-order and to try and get the band into the charts.

Early beginnings[ edit ] Nottingham’s first station was Carrington Street station , which opened in May , when the Midland Counties Railway opened the line from Nottingham to Derby. This terminus station was situated on the opposite side of Carrington Street to the current station, on a site now occupied by Nottingham Magistrates’ Court. The original station gate posts still exist and form the pedestrian entrance to the Magistrates’ Courts area.
By , the new company had outgrown Carrington Street station and new lines to Lincoln had been opened. A new through station was opened on the current station site on 22 May , replacing the Carrington Street station. In the Midland Railway purchased the West Croft Canal arm, filling it and building additional parallel tracks to south. Although attractive when it first opened, by the early s the station was cramped, with only three platforms.
On 18 September a light engine, running tender first, was passing through the station when it came into collision with six empty fish trucks. Six people on the platform were injured. Lambert had been the architect for the Nottingham Victoria railway station and consequently the two buildings shared many similarities in their design.
The station was re-built largely on the same site as the Station Street station, but the entrance was relocated onto Carrington Street.
Much of this chaos and confusion is brought about by those with parental responsibility, where too much is done with or provided for the child. A child in fact just needs to feel safe and cared for. Britain was already at war with Germany and her father Eric had signed up to join the army. Sneinton was and still is a close community with a strong work ethic. Rose, as a young mother did her bit.

Baxter the shooting star Nottingham Forest chapter started the rapid decline of a glittering career The obituaries written for Jim Baxter last week were forgivably incomplete. In tributes expressed at his funeral in Glasgow Cathedral yesterday, the sentiments were similarly fragrant. For two reasons, Baxter deserved the sweetest send-off. The first is because he was a brilliant footballer, a statement that brooks no argument.
The second is because the principle of honouring the dead is universally applied. But Baxter’s tragic story deserves a fuller airing. His life had streams of tragedy running through it, both as a footballer and as a man. For every heroic bar-stool story recounted last week, the pain and suffering never quite departed him.
Through the long self-indulgent hours, week after week, year after year, Baxter first did in his family and then wrecked his own career. He was prone by a whim to say anything to anyone but when I met him last year he seemed momentarily snared to regret. As did his football career.
