It is a tributary of the River Thames , rising within the urban area of Basingstoke and flowing to meet the Thames near the village of Wargrave. Most of the mills used water wheels to generate their power, although two used water turbines. One was a silk mill for a short period, and one was a paper mill, with the rest milling corn or producing flour. Several have been converted to become homes or hotels, but one is still operated on an occasional basis.
The river has been used for navigation in the past, although its exact nature is unclear. The river is an important resource for wild life. A section of it is a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest due to rare populations of bulbs and pondweed. It supports several species of fish, and recent improvements have included the provision of a fish bypass, to enable migrating fish to move around the mill site at Arborfield.
The scheme has been implemented to comply with the Water Framework Directive and is expected to be a benchmark for similar schemes on other rivers. The river first becomes into a full scale river in the village of old basing, it is free to fish here as long as you dont fish on private land, this includes, the part of the river near the over head railway bridge and on wards to the road bridge into the the woods lots of fish and good fun.
You can also fish on wards towards where the river splits.

After ordering a bacon and cheese burger – along with a latte and a pint of Peroni – I took a seat at a table in the corner of the grand hall. The last time I was at the venue was for a Salsa night, when the hall had been cleared of tables and served as a dance floor. My latte arrived three minutes after I made my order and I was frustrated to find that I did not come with any white sugar.
Instead, I received two brown sugar packets and a teaspoon which was too short to reach the bottom of the glass without dipping my fingertips into the coffee. Later a couple of customers wandered in and ordered red cocktails. They took up the furthest table away from me, adding a little colour to the venue.
Now there is a complex of buildings dating from the early 19th century. There is Mill House from which both the mill and a farm were run. The Old Mill itself was converted to a cottage, but as a plaque on the side records, the waterwheel was restored in and continues to work.
The borough of Warwick: Introduction, the suburbs from c. The form of the medieval suburb of West Street has persisted until the present day with remarkably few changes. The line of small dwellings at each side of the road to Stratford terminated at the site of St. The steep incline towards the West Gate gives some idea of Warwick’s defensive strength. The suburb in was described as ‘wide and airy’ and consisted of ‘low houses inhabited by the working classes of the community’.
The extension of the castle grounds deprived the inhabitants of their access to the river from Sanders Row to High Ladsome in , and to Low Ladsome in , though an alternative washing place and cistern was provided. The names of the new streets recalled not only the former friary – Friar Court, Monk Street and Chapel Court – but also contemporary Warwick industrialists whose workers were housed there.
Closely-packed houses were freely interspersed with inns and skittle alleys, but the only industry was the tannery of Samuel Burbury. Expansion took place after the Second World War and by the Forbes Estate was developed by the corporation to the line of the Gog Brook. Development in the s took place to the south of West Street behind existing houses against the castle park.

During a six week period, four separate bombing raids were carried out on Templecombe, Somerton and Chard Junction; the signal box at Castle Cary was totally destroyed and a temporary box was hastily assembled at the GWR’s signal works at Reading and installed at the junction two days later; this was later replaced by a brick-built box on 27 October, by which time repairs to the track had been completed and the GWR’s train services fully restored.
During World War 2 Castle Cary was considered by the military to be a strategic railway junction serving the large naval base at Weymouth, however fast-forward to the present day, and Castle Cary station has come under siege in a quite different way.

Simon Follos, aged 43, called Antonia Alberone-Chamberlain ‘beautiful’ when he met her in the Hive library in Worcester. When in jail he sent two letters to the teenager, requesting a date and again referring to her beauty. Ms Alberone-Chamberlain, now 19, said the incidents, which took place in June and August, made her feel uncomfortable. Kerry Lovegrove, prosecuting, said: He tells her she is beautiful and asks to go on a date after he is released from prison. The solicitor added that he then spoke to her again and told her she was beautiful, which made the year-old feel uncomfortable.
Ms Alberone-Chamberlain’s manager originally opened the letters – to make sure there was nothing threatening inside of them – before delivering them to the employee. Sunil Jagatia, defending, said Follos suffers from psychological issues and was mentally unstable during the first half of his prison sentence. He was remorseful at the outset. He’s been put on correct medication.

Heaven guard and bless you, dearest one, Whilst I in foreign hands may roam; Though I am absent in the flesh, My tenderest thoughts are of my home. Our Dugouts were very comfortable, mostly cement; in fact the trenches themselves were high class, as Fritz had been such a long time without disturbing us that they had made them into a real home. Our only cobbers were the big rats that used to walk along the parapet in the moonlight looking for spare scraps of food that we might throw over that way.
It was about now that rumours began to get round that the Ausies were going down to the [Page 51] Somme, and when on the 12th of Oct the advance guard of the New Zealanders came in we knew things were not far wrong. We were going down to Somme to participate in a big attack or “Stunt” very shortly, and as we had heard from the N. On the 18th of October we left Strazelle marching by road to Bailleul, where we once more boarded the train [Page 52] that was to take us to the Somme.
Surely we must be near it now. The was no parade for the boys that day as we were too tired, so we just put our blankets out to dry and slept the greater part of the day. By the time we got off that road we were sights worth seeing, splashed with mud from head to foot from the big motor lorries but still smiling. Now we passed through a wood but it was a wood no longer, as the trees were splintered and dead with the shells that had been hurled into it when the fighting had passed over that spot and all it was good for now was firewood as soon as the line was far away enough to use it.
Seven years later, another document described another mercer in the area. Within the next ten years, the area developed into a leading market town and a major cloth trade was established. The name Mercer Street is first mentioned in the Survey of Birmingham of This was a result of the prominence of the area in the cloth trade. In the 16th century and 17th century, Mercer Street rapidly developed and became cramped.

The same can be said for every single contributor to this site, of couse I take my hat off to everyone involved, for this site would be a lot poorer without them. In Derek’s case, the task of recording the individual histories of the ‘Britannia’ class locomotives has been a mammoth undertaking, and there have been times when the pair of us – just two bungling old geezers with a mutual love for trains and railways – were on our arthritic knees by the sheer size of it all. So my hearty congratulations to him in completing the full histories of the following locomotives on this page Please note Nos are featured on the next page.
Born in , Derek started train spotting with his brother Roger at the now-closed Monument Lane station, Birmingham, where he fondly remembers the ‘1 o’clock Brit’ on the 9. Since taking early retirement as a HGV Mechanic in , Derek’s knowledge of all things power-driven led him to making a start on correcting the many anomalies he found in books and magazines regarding the BR Class 7MT Britannias. His research has taken him more than 3 years, and I was pleased he agreed to pass on his findings here.
However, Derek’s main reservation was that, whilst the first group of Britannias are indeed very interesting, and in some cases diverse, the third batch of engines are somewhat mundane by comparison, and so whilst he felt confident of filling a page with information on say, Nos , it would be tricky to give the same result with to This is because the list of modifications diminished as they were put into the building programme and only half of these changes were required on later batches.

At best interest for the car in question is piqued, which is a positive thing in my eyes as everyone should be making up their own minds at the end of the day. However there is a problem in the way most reviews are conducted. One hour is all the car has to sell itself.

Old motoring-related photographs that have now been identified. Former “Mystery Car” photos that have now been identified. For some time now, the Mystery Car Photographs page has been growing and growing, with new photographs of classic, vintage and veteran cars that need identifying. Up until now, the cars that have been identified have remained on the Mystery Cars page. However, due to the sheer number of photos now on there, I’ve decided to move over the identified cars to this new page.
Hopefully this will make it easier to peruse those cars that have yet to be positively identified. The following cars have now been identified: The photo shown here is believed to date to the s, and was sent in by Jon. Whatever it is, it has a very distinctive shape to the grille and the central badge area. Registration VH , does this car still exist? John R suggests it could be a Rover, perhaps a 2 litre or 16??

The waters that the club were able to use were only rivers, and the stretch of river from Colesbrook to Highbridge Mill was the first to be used. The club investigated the other stretches of river around, and found that the river above Gillingham town Shreen would make excellent Trout fishing water and was in fact designated as Fly fishing. No longer a fly fishing stretch, the river is still used by the club to this day. In , a member suggested that the committee should patrol stretches of the river to prevent poaching, where it was pointed out that the rules permitted any member to ask to see the membership card of anyone fishing the associations waters.
