And they are right. The sessions are focused, but jovial, with much joking and everything taken in good humour. You may believe that the ringing is the most important element and ultimately you are right, but a social atmosphere helps towards generating good ringing. Go to Birmingham or the College Youths practice and nearly everyone goes to the pub afterwards and many continue their ringing with trips away and other social occasions that are great fun. Likewise at Pettistree and other places too. If you create a light-hearted social environment it attracts more ringers and more often than not good ringing, which in turn usually attracts more ringers and so on. On this occasion at SMLT, the social element was well fulfilled with an invitation to attend the annual pre-Christmas curry and a drink in The Cricketers where the barman accidentally knocked a pint of beer over Chris Birkby to much amusement, including the soakee.
A little edge chipping on two examples and one is a little dusty, good otherwise. It was never owned by the LNER. However, following nationalisation it was transferred to the Eastern Region of British Railways.

No trains will run between King’s Lynn and Ely on these days. Services to and from Ely and Waterbeach will also be affected. Information from Great Northern is available here. The guidance below is given in good faith as a public service and represents our understanding of the proposed arrangements; the Association accepts no responsibilty for any inaccuracies or variations.
Journey times will be up to 90 minutes longer. Valid rail tickets will be accepted on the rail replacement bus services. There will be many other train services running between Ely and Cambridge, with 1 an hour operating from Ely to King’s Cross. Ely-Liverpool Street services should operate as normal. However, there will be trains between Ely and Cambridge, calling at Waterbeach and at Cambridge North.
For journeys to London a change of trains at Cambridge will be required. Waterbeach-Liverpool Street services should operate as normal. We are pleased to pass on the CURC’s invitation. Tuesday 6 February – “This train line closure will add 90 minutes to your journey next week. Engineering work is closing this route for five days in a row” writes Tom Pilgrim in the Cambridge News.
I’m blown away by the level of support from fellow rail enthusiasts in building this site. Their willingness to participate in its construction with no prospect of financial gain, just the satisfaction of being involved, is bloody marvellous. Starting in May , Derek’s input has been a massive 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.
Integrity and quality are at the heart of the Spokane Seed Company (SSC). For over a century SSC has been sourcing and processing some of the finest whole and split dried green and yellow peas.
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.
Nevertheless there are many more photos of these later builds, primarily because enthusiasts began to realise that extinction was on the horizon, so perhaps the additional photos will remedy the imbalance.
News from Great Britain
There were as yet no circuits from London to the cities in the north or west of Britain, only to the south and east. But there was a slow recovery. The strength of the British economy was such that it survived the Railway Mania, the money and the food panics with relative ease; although the reliance in Ireland on the potato crop was devastating to its population and that island’s economy.
The emergence of Louis Napoleon in and the subsequent creation of the Second Empire in France in stabilised the rest of Europe and restored economic harmony.
(Above) British Railways poster – ‘Forging Ahead – The First British Railways Standard Express Locomotive’ – was painted by Terence Cuneo in , and depicts BR Standard Class 7MT No ‘Britannia’ leaving London Paddington station with an express train. In the background is a King Class locomotive in the early BR blue livery. The painting is a fitting tribute to the doyen of the class.
Crossing the Irish Sea by the ‘Short Sea route’. One of the shortest crossings between Mainland Britain and Ireland is that between Portpatrick and Donaghadee. This is about 22 miles and the settlement of Scots in Ulster created traffic. The main traffic was not mail, but cattle on the hoof. John Smeaton improved the harbour at Portpatrick.
In John Rennie senior was commissioned to examine improvements to the last-named. Burns introduced steam vessels on the Glasgow to Belfast run and captured most of the traffic. In Burns stopped at Greenock to provide the Mail service and the mail stations at Portpatrick and Donaghadee were closed. The LNWR provided a train which left London in the evening and reached Belfast late in the following afternoon, but the service only ran on two days per week.
The first Princess Victoria perfoprmed the crossding in 2 h 15 min. The Princess Maud was the first turbine-driven ship. The MR opened a new harbour at Heysham and provided competition, but all of the northern ferry routes became part of the LMS. The administrration in Northern Ireland favoured the Stranraer route and the Post Office permitted a first class sleeping car to be attached to the down Wset Coast Postal.

Ipswich and suburbs at the close of the Middle Ages This is a clickable imagemap. This map is the work of antiquary John Speed working with the Dutch engraver Hondius and was created as an inset for a map of Suffolk published in as part of a series of county maps. The additions in colour are of course my own. According to a note in one of the Ipswich Domesday Books, the ditches were dug in ; but this does not rule out the effort simply being an enlargement or extension of an earlier line of defence.
There are fairly frequent references to grants of parcels of the town ditch, particular along the northern boundary, where they are sometimes referred to as the “great ditches of the town”. Walls are far less commonly mentioned and their extent is uncertain.

It is an opportunity for us to reflect on the language and ideas that represented each year. So, take a stroll down memory lane to remember all of our past Word of the Year selections. Change It wasn’t trendy , funny, nor was it coined on Twitter , but we thought change told a real story about how our users defined Unlike in , change was no longer a campaign slogan. But, the term still held a lot of weight. Here’s an excerpt from our Word of the Year announcement in The national debate can arguably be summarized by the question: In the past two years, has there been enough change?
Has there been too much? Meanwhile, many Americans continue to face change in their homes, bank accounts and jobs. Only time will tell if the latest wave of change Americans voted for in the midterm elections will result in a negative or positive outcome. Tergiversate This rare word was chosen to represent because it described so much of the world around us. Tergiversate means “to change repeatedly one’s attitude or opinions with respect to a cause, subject, etc.
And so, we named tergiversate the Word of the Year.
