On Friday I collected litter from Barrington Road, which basically consisted of a booklet of A4 sheets, unfortunately not bound but spread the length of Barrington Road (100 pages). The photograph is one of the cover sheets, kind of strange that anyone would want to litter Barrington Road was it stolen? or was it just […]

Something peculiar to the older part of Upper Rissington are these sub stations, with old control boxes outside the fenced off areas. I have just contacted SSE via their website and hopefully they may remove them. I am concerned that they could be used to gain a foot hold into the active sub stations areas […]
