If that wasn't there, you would be able to see the Cottage by the Brook behind it.Forgive my ignorance, been out of Stafford for some decades now, but where that ATS place is in the pix, didn't there used to be a club around there, I think to do with Lotus, where back in the day I did my John Travolta disco dancing .....
(First one that laughs gets .50 calibre time .... )
Thanks Giles. My position fix was a bit out, must have been all that disco dancing addling my brain. What I do remember is walking down across the allotments along the 'Little Bank' to get to it from the Rec. All of that is built on now.
(Orders more .50 calibre ammo from Ebay.)
Whilst it was heavy rain, it lasted only a few hours. I thought our invisible MP was all over this, she literally got elected on this mandate. But then chose to vote to put shit in our waterways, starve our children and renew fracking.The drains that fill the lower balancing lake seem to have an automated pressure relief system.

I wonder if anybody has considered using the balancing lakes to contain the water in the lake and release it at a rate that the clogged ditch can cope with?
There seemed to be plenty of reserve capacity available in either lake to contain many times the current volume of Lake Sandon.

Lower dam. The hydrocarbon smell at that location was rather strong.
All six of these pictures were taken within fifteen minutes at around 11:20 to 11:35 today.
I went to the Lotus club ,as I knew some people working there. Seem to vaguely remember going in through an entrance from Oxford gardens way (or that could have been a short cut for us as we walked from the Prince of Wales over the Rec way? )
Yes, had a nice photo opportunity at Lake Sandon, married a Harrowby from Sandon Hall but still won't do anything about it.Whilst it was heavy rain, it lasted only a few hours.

Still she got a nice photo opp out of it. Pointless.
If you get paid to do a job and don't do it isn't that fraud or something?
Apparantly she's been working really hard, FML, yet a morning of rain and we're back in floodland. She's utterly pointlessTBH, it's actually the job of the council, councillors and environment agency to deal with stuff like that surely? your MP can lean on them a bit to get things done or try to secure funding of course.

Good. No one should do what this shower of shite ask! But I'm not sure it actually works like that!Well that's the point, she had a meeting with the people who are supposed to do the work and they didn't do the work. Lets face it, people in local government are often Labour supporters so are well known to just ignore what a Tory MP tells them to do.
