The Very Beginnings For this particular page of railway memories, the story truly starts at the beginning, which in this case is at Walton hospital in June when our storyteller, Mal came into the world. Seven days later, whilst Mal was at the hospital he was joined in the nursery by no less than the recently delivered Paul McCartney. Mal along with many others was born into troubled times. World War Two was raging, with the Liverpool area regularly a target for Goering’s Luftwaffe bombers due to the importance of its docks, warehouses and industry. Then in his father’s house in Liverpool had been destroyed in an air raid. I enjoyed going round all the shipping offices in Liverpool and also remember seeing the overhead railway being taken down. Memories include the last trams at the pier head, the last big liners coming into Liverpool, exploring the ruins of Custom House, what a building that must have been in its heyday before the war.

A large portion of the line, between Paddington in central London and Abbey Wood in the south-east, is due to open in Autumn At the time of this opening, that new section and two other existing routes will be officially renamed the Elizabeth line, after Queen Elizabeth II. At each end of the central core, the line will divide into two branches: Part of one of the eastern branches, between Liverpool Street and Shenfield, was transferred to a precursor service called TfL Rail in May ; this precursor also took control of Heathrow Connect in May In August the opening of the core Elizabeth line was delayed from December until Autumn Prior to this delay, the Shenfield branch was to have been connected to the core to Paddington in May and the branches west of Paddington were to be connected to the central core in December , but this schedule is now unclear.

The project was approved in and construction began in on the central section and connections to existing lines that will become part of the route. These tunnels will run from Paddington to Stratford and Canary Wharf in the east. New nine-carriage Class trains will run at frequencies in the central section of up to 24 trains per hour in each direction.

North of Folly Lane bridge. A shunter which would at Dallam shed. I have many happy memories of my grandfather and the railway. He was a driver, and as a child of about years old I went down to Dallam shed with him. He also took me to work with him on a number of occasions after he gave up main line driving. He was a lad that rode round the town in the early hours on his bike with a long pole.

Routes[ edit ] The whole of Helvellyn, above the conifer plantations to the west and the intake walls surrounding the valleys of Glenridding and Grisedale to the east, is Open Access land. Walkers can choose between many routes. Striding Edge begins at Hole-in-the-Wall and then stretches for over 1. This starting point is accessible from both Glenridding and Patterdale. Hole-in-the-Wall used to be a prominent gap in the stone wall on the top of the ridge where a gate was missing.

From here the initial part of the ridge is relatively rounded and has a solid path running along the right-hand side. The path on the right-hand side continues until near the end of the ridge where it switches over to the left-hand side. Scramblers who continue on the top of the ridge are forced to descend an awkward short gully down from the final rock tower to rejoin the path.

On the green border are parnassus flowers from the arms of the Cumberland CC interspersed with white roses for Yorkshire, superimposed with red roses for Lancashire. The ram’s head is taken from the arms of the Barrow CBC and also of the Westmorland CC and is distinguished from them by parnassus flowers, taken from the Cumberland arms. The mural crown is a common civic emblem. The red dragon refers to those that support the device of Appleby – the ancient county town of Westmorland; also it is heraldically related to the red wyverns of Carlisle and symbolises the connection, going back to Celtic times, between Cumbria and Cambria Wales.

Early history[ edit ] John Speed ‘s map of the County Palatine of Lancaster, The county was established in , [4] later than many other counties. During Roman times the area was part of the Brigantes tribal area in the military zone of Roman Britain. In the centuries after the Roman withdrawal in AD the northern parts of the county probably formed part of the Brythonic kingdom of Rheged , a successor entity to the Brigantes tribe.

Commer Invader of around , perhaps? No idea about the operator though. I have trawled through my books by Cambridgeshire transport expert Paul Carter without success. The lettering in the garter I could marginally improve, enough to make a bit clearer the last three letters on the upper left side of the garter which seem to be Ltd. The first three letters on the top of the right hand side maybe Cam , the C is certain, the rest not so much.

This looks like a short name on the left and a larger location on the right given the proportions of the space on each side of the garter. What looks like legal lettering in white on the lower forward panel definitely starts with J but the second word has the wrong shapes for Parnell.

Back then I had a schoolboy ‘crush’ on the then ‘Queen of Pop’, but her hit-making career lasted only two years in the chiefly male-dominated hit parade: By , however, the music scene was to change forever. I’m talking about the ‘Liverpool Sound’ which knocked spots off everything in the charts. Against a backdrop of Beatles’ smash hits, countless thousands of youngsters set about the task of photographing steam before it vanished from the scene.

That’s why I’d made a start on photographing the Aire Valley line before it was too late Thirty-odd years later, however, and it has all ended up in tears

These ‘mind control’ chips emit electronic pulses that alter brain chemistry in a process called ‘deep brain stimulation. Scroll down for video Mind control chips being developed by the US military could be used to control your mood, after testing in humans began for the first time. Microchips implanted into people’s skulls emit electronic pulses that alter their brain chemistry, in a process called ‘deep brain stimulation.

Deep brain simulation involves implanting fine wires, with electrodes at their tips, into the brain. These are connected to extensions that are travel under the skin behind the ear and down the neck. The electrodes deliver high frequency shock to a targeted area in the brain. This stimulation changes some of the electrical signals in the brain to change behaviour or movement. Researchers from the University of California UC and Massachusetts General Hospital MGH designed them to use artificial intelligence algorithms that detect patterns of activity associated with mood disorders.

Once detected, they can shock a patient’s brain back into a healthy state automatically. Experts believe the chips could be beneficial to patients with a range of illnesses, from Parkinson’s disease to chronic depression.

‘Walking back to happiness – whoompa – oh, yeah-yeah!’ The year Is and 14 year-old schoolgirl Helen Shapiro is storming up the charts with her first No 1 .

Phil’s quite obvious enthusiasm for Blyth is infectious – his love of the Northumbrian town shines through, and so I am pleased he has agreed to input his childhood memories on this site. Meanwhile I’ll let Phil take up the story The map itself is quite fragile and it is printed on what I can only describe as greaseproof paper. The map is not on the usual alignment since the North is off to the left in the top left corner of the map. To the north of this staith was a large selection of LNER sidings but for some reason they have not been included in this map.

The sidings also had a connection into the Hughes Bolckow breakers yard, which can be clearly seen on the map, along with North Blyth Engine Shed 52F opened in Moving south we have the original Cowpen Quay, which became the Cowpen Dry Docks, which also had two shipbuilding slipways. Get out the balsa wood!

Needless to say, it was the last time he took his wife out in the car, but after a course of driving lessons she did pass her test eventually. Many other childhood memories have been sparked by finding such familiar places on this old LNER map. I was born in Ashington in and brought up in the village of Cowpen, pronounced ‘Coopen’ – I should point out that cows are not cows in Geordie-land, they are ‘coos’. Blyth was very much past its best when I was growing up.
