where did you go?
It's a wonderful piece of road. Surely this should be the aim of all road widening schemes: a project that adds such capacity that the road is never subsequently busy even 20 years later. I do admit that, as someone who lives two miles from this stretch of road, I might be slightly biased.All that remained was the benighted slog home. At this time, a four-lane section of the A1 between Peterborough and Alconbury was being installed. At 50 miles per hour, limit enforced by speed cameras, it took forever to get through, especially as I was starting to feel cream crackered. This high capacity stretch of the A1 always strikes me as a white elephant. Is it ever busy?
Good to hear you volunteered to help keep Lawkholme standing. Clearly, the Keighley News knows a good photo opportunity when it's presented.Wednesday, March 26th 1980. Southern League South.
Addlestone v Fareham Town 1-1 (0-1). Att: 140.
PS. A stunning photograph of the stand at Lawkholme Lane, Stoodley.
Somewhere in the archives of the Keighley News, (1966 ?), there is a photograph of yours truly, and a few others, in said stand, who had volunteered to spend the summer holidays painting the place.
