    Wouldn't 200 miles west of Stafford put you right in the sea?

    I think it would put you somewhere on the border of Carlow & Laois counties in Ireland, which is not so far from where @Gramaisc's folks reside I believe...

    To be fair you did say "about 200 miles"...

    It is remarkably close to the same latitude - the Greyhound at Yarlet is as far from the Equator as I am here.

    Seemed to be a bit of a tailback on Baswich lane on the way home. I wasn't in the car so didn't see how far back it went.

    That settles it - anyone know of any good parking spots in Weston?

    And places where I can get very good walking boots?

    Hubby drove that way just after 4pm-ish and said the traffic at the Baswich Lane roadworks at that time "Was acceptable" Hoping you are right about them only being there 11-12th!

    Are the roadworks still down by Aldi tonight? I read in the paper last week that they would be there for a week. Then went on to say 'At least until Monday.' (Didn't say which monday...)

    They were earlier, seemed fairly quiet. But most people would be on the way out of Stafford not into it at that time.

    Certainly riding the bike back into work tomorrow. Might not be working in Stafford soon if the redundancy meetings don't go my way. While I don't want to drive to another town, it might actually save some time and agro.

    Someone needs to be alerted because all these roadworks are stopping people from outside of the town visiting and spending their cash in the few remaining shops.
