This is the burnt out drug van left at Highmoor pit gates they probably came off motorway delivered with escort then burnt it out and jumped in car and away easy money theres an epidemic in the area nothing being done.
Same is going to happen to this as what happened to the midland station and the westthorpe mining museum . There should have been a mining museum with the railway going round rother valley also the station (which we did say if they started taking it down it would be left in a big heap which has come true) the station should have been made into a Victorian style café for all the walkers and cyclists to sit and enjoy a drink, we put this suggestion forward more than 12 years ago but nothing done, for some reason we need more houses with no infrastructure in place so chaos will prevail in the end. The state of Sheffield road shops now look like something from bladerunner now people see this and drive straight through. The only thing left for the heritage of killamarsh is the church and no doubt the council will have eyes on that to turn it into a hairdressers, tanning booth, another curry house, Chinese, pizza house, or chip shop. We have now become a laughing stock, the cholesterol capitol of Derbyshire its ok having a good haircut nice tan but die early of obesity. One good thing, we’ll all be the best groomed corpses in the graveyard .
PS we have heard planning for forty houses on the midland site to join up with the walkers scrapyard project
Has anybody heard anything about the alledged planning for a windfarm at Norwood two large propellers are being proposed
People asking for council to brick up the outside of council houses to make them look better and so people can have more pride in the way there houses are kept this could be the way forward to stop killamarsh looking like it does with litter and bad gardens if the council don’t care people don’t care.
Asbestos dumped at the top of long lane at mansfield road end only noticed it when walking round and dog sniffing at it cannot believe people can dump this it is so dangerous we are summising it was dumped when the leaves were on the trees it must be removed quickly and safely relevent authorities been informed watch this space UPDATE; Still not been removed very dangerous at least if you catch asbestosis it will be logged by this post.
- We have got to say something its been going on to long and its miners complaining about a Williamthorpe bogie being shown in a pit village that did’nt have them. Highmoor had trackless and westthorpe had short wheel based trams, why the council cannot get there facts correct is beyond belief lets hope they get it correct in the near future as it shows there fob off anything will do attitude. As for the monuments to the pit village its to late now the council let all the original winding wheels go and had a great opportunity to open westthorpe mining museum and keep the train lines open to run trains around rother valley as well as opening the canal they had a great chance but let all the plans and suggestions go would have been a real money spinner for killamarsh canal boat rides a trip down a mine with museum and steam train rides around rother valley instead we have ghetto land.
