Austin 7 Swallow Saloon, original with matching numbers. Built in late , this saloon is a model that drives and runs well. With a good original interior and many correct parts, which with some additional work will produce a very good car.

For these a stud of Halls was maintained and for a time during and soon after the war Princess Augusta was based at Tyseley especially for the heavy Cardiff trains — I made at least one journey behind about In Tyseley had been home to steam locos and 2 diesel railcars for the Cardiff service. D type , 7 class s, 2 Dean Goods s, 33 Ts for suburban passenger trains, and 37 Pannier tanks, mainly for shunting and local trip freights.

By Tyseley shed had been coded 84E by British Railways, but otherwise there was little change although the total fleet had risen to locos. There were now 24 s, including just one Saint, 17 Halls, 15 Granges and 1 Manor. The elderly s had vanished, to be replaced by 2 90xx s, nominally new in , but in fact rebuilds of earlier locos. In there were 31 suburban Ts: A class new to Tyseley was the 56xx T, commonly found in the South Wales valleys and represented by two examples.

That left 44 pannier tanks, including one of the small 74xx series and 3 of the new taper boiler 84xx series. The two diesel cars had moved away and were now based in South Wales.

History[ edit ] Olton means ‘old town’ and is the site of the manor of Ulverlei from where Solihull was founded. Ulverlei has been translated to mean Wulfhere ‘s clearing or meadow. Wulfhere’s father, Penda , was killed in fighting against Oswiu of Northumbria. Penda’s son Peada became king under Oswiu’s overlordship, but was murdered a year later. Wulfhere came to the throne when Mercian nobles organised a revolt against Northumbrian rule in , and drove out Oswiu’s governors.

Perhaps, because of the royal connection, William I granted the lands to Christina , who was descended from King Edmund Ironside. Land for 20 ploughs. In lordship 1; 3 slaves.

The right-hand-drive Mk1 Tiger from is being sold by Classic Car Auctions on December 2 is reckoned to be one of just 25 surviving examples worldwide from a limited run of cars produced by the Chrysler Competitions Centre.

“The Grand Entrance is formed of a majestic Doric portico, similar to the Propylea of the Greek cities, with antæ and two lodges on either side, forming offices for booking parcels, &c. and extending about feet in width, the centre being opposite to a wide opening into Euston-square.

If the turkey is not fully thawed, harmful bacteria could survive the cooking process and ruin the big day for you and everyone else. Why do we eat turkey at Christmas? Eating turkey at Christmas is a tradition going back to medieval times. Large fowl was the centre piece in the houses of the rich; Geese, duck, partridge but to name a few. Turkeys were introduced in the Tudor times and because of the plentiful meat on them, they soon grew in popularity. In post war Britain, modern farming methods facilitated more turkeys to be reared and the traditional turkey is still the most popular meat to eat over the festive period.

How long do I cook my turkey for? Simply tell us the weight of your bird and what time you’d like to be sitting down and our handy tool will calcuate your turkey’s cooking time and break the morning down into a minute-by-minute plan for a full Christmas Dinner with all the trimmings.

It was erected by Messrs. Cubitt, after the designs of Philip Hardwick, Esq. The proportions of this splendid erection are gigantic, and the portico may be considered the largest in Europe, if not in the world. The diameter of the columns is eight feet six inches; their height forty-two feet; the intercolumniation twenty-eight feet, forming the carriage entrance; and the total height, to the apex of the pediment, seventy two feet. It is built of Bramley Fall stone; of which, in this erection alone, above 75, cubic feet were consumed.

Another very noticeable change would be to the size and speed of the rolling stock, made possible, in part, by the heavy around lbs per yard continuous welded steel rail laid on pre-stressed concrete sleepers in a bed of crushed granite ballast.

Formerly those who elected to travel by the Great Western Railway between those points had to make a long detour via the Severn Tunnel, Hereford, Worcester, Kidderminster, a distance of miles over a steeply graded route or travel via Didcot and Banbury, a distance of miles. By means of the new connection between Tyseley and Bearley and between Honeybourne and Cheltenham, together with a revival of the running powers over the Midland line from Standish to Yate, the Great Western Company will possess a route of only 95 miles in length, with gradients and curves suitable for express services.

The total length of the new line from Tyseley to Bearley West Junction is Seventeen and three quarter miles. There is also a loop connecting the old Lapworth and Henley-in-Arden branch with a new station at the latter place. Leaving the main line to Paddington at Tyseley station three miles south east of Birmingham, it terminates at a junction with the Hatton and Stratford line, about half a mile from Bearley station.

Its course is roughly north and south, and it skirts the eastern boundary of Warwickshire, occasionally crossing into Worcestershire. Yardley Wood, Earlswood, Wood End, and Henley-in-Arden are obvious enough; Wootton Wawen is a little abstruse, but nevertheless is associated with the forest, which covered the whole of Warwickshire, filling the angle between the Severn and the Avon as far north as Wolverhampton.

However the demand for charcoal for iron smelting cleared the wood, and the land coming under the plough was found to be so productive as to outrival the Feddon district. Much of it is now pasture, and a heavy milk traffic is likely to develop. Geologically the line is cut on the outcrop of the Keuper or Upper Trias. The first cutting after leaving Tyseley is almost entirely in loamy gravel, but the marl is reached just above rail level.

Passing south the thickness of gravel generally decreases and it is altogether absent in some cuttings, but a good gravel site may be found for building at almost any spot on the line. This marl is a most excellent material for railway making. In the cutting at Wood End, at the bottom of a slope 40 feet long, a vertical face stood perfectly through the winter, and the embankments of marl have stood without giving signs of slips.

History[ edit ] Atherstone has a long history dating back to Roman times. An important defended Roman settlement named Manduessedum existed at Mancetter near the site of modern-day Atherstone, and the Roman road, the Watling Street most of which later became part of the A5 ran through the town. It is believed by some historians that the rebel Queen of the Britons , Boudica was defeated at the Battle of Watling Street by the Romans in her final battle near Manduessedum.

Class 47s were the most numerous and versatile diesel locomotives on the UK railway system. There were few places they could not go and few duties they could not perform. Because of this, they were derided by most enthusiasts until it became clear that they were not long for this world, when, of course, they became the number one target and people travelled far and wide to photograph their final workings.

Fortuntately, I had always photographed them and once again didn’t feel the need to chase them around too much in the final months of their working lives. The summer of saw a Saturdays only On 9 July operated this service and is seen here just beyond Water Orton in the days when the M42 embankment was an excellent location for northbound workings. I think that the diesel worked only to Crewe from a where a steam locomotive took over for the remainder of the journey.

I must have been quite a spectacle for anyone on the train as a large herd of friendly bullocks had arranged themselves in a semicircle behind me, luckily not straying into shot, although the accompanying flies were always in danger of making themselves known in the form of out-of-focus blobs in the sky and I did, in fact, have to clone out a couple of marks that presumably were insects I really hadn’t fancied yet another class 37 shot here especially with such an unexciting load but the freshly painted 47 was a much more attractive proposition.
