Beeston Lock & Marina

February 28, 2015

The River is High and it’s very ‘bracing’ but worth a look.



Deep of the Winter!

Look after each other!

The Canal is frozen



Stay warm and cosy, wrap up for Wintery walks, hope the Snow stays away!!

Wintery River

January 31, 2015

Beyond the City and Suburbs and the well ordered Park, even beyond the River Marina’s beyond ‘Civilisation’ (with piped centrally heated homes) travelling all of 5-7 miles, there’s another world …

The Mystical River on a Winter dismal afternoon or ‘Spooky nearly in Flood’!  Beyond meandering: determined and swollen at the limit of the Ofer – (an old word for Bank or Shore!)

We the subjects, are liable to be called out in better months ‘Shingling’ – thats clearing the banks and possibly finding building material while we work!  It’s an old By-law and was enforceable by the ‘Wardens’


Check the Facebook link on the Sidebar for ‘Around the UK Winter photo shares and info!

There are, of course, lots of lovely Pubs, Restaurants and Tea Rooms and Garden Centres with Cafes in the County villages and along the River – Even Museums and County Towns with super shops etc Southwell, Newark, Ruddington, and more in other Counties the River flows through!

They just aren’t in the Photo’s!

Lots Tweets on

Including Nottm City Transport, Trent Barton etc timetable … just the late nite buses.

There are Weather, Motorway, Bus Companies, Train info, Breakdown AA and RAC and Nottm City Taxi twitter accounts on the list below plus a taxi register for other Cities.!/wollaton_nottm/travel-traff-weather-safe

Stay safe if driving you have taken ‘the pledge’ for the night and are on non-alcoholic drinks till you are home please. It’s important please, the roads are still wintery and you need quick and safe reactions! Thanks.

Side Roads and County Roads are still really icy and without the buses the main roads could ice up again too. 

Make sure everyone has a Happy New Year.

Firework Display at Nottingham Castle!

A special Happy New Year to anyone who’s on their own.
