“92/365 Highfield’s Park” by rutty is licensed under CC BY-NC-SA Beeston is lucky to have so many green spaces nearby. One of my favourites just happens to be Highfield’s Park, a lovely lake with wooded areas, a play park and several arts spaces. The lake is home to plenty of waterfowl, including a family of…… Continue reading 92/365 Highfield’s Park
https://flic.kr/p/RS87Ns Jo and I had a rare night out tonight. It’s her birthday, so I treated her to a couple of hours of my company. I also ensured that I had access to cocktails by taking her to The Berliner bar in Beeston. It’s a recent addition to the Beeston drinking scene. Its name suggests…… Continue reading 79/365 Ease springs
https://flic.kr/p/Qw3GHu I have found a little place of wonder where I can spend an hour enjoying some lovely beer and chat to nice strangers. That place is the Pottle of Blues in Beeston. It’s a ‘micro-pub’ that has emerged from an old candle shop, and it has just four real ales on at once, plus…… Continue reading 34/365 Poetry
https://flic.kr/p/qXexXi 17th February 2015 There is a hotel near where I work called The Rockaway. I’ve often seen it but never thought to go in. It looks like the sort of place frequented by older folks that like tea and those sandwiches that have the crusts cut off. They have recently started doing takeaway food…… Continue reading Menu
https://flic.kr/p/qfrcLy 15th February 2015 The Bee Man in Beeston is a prominent and much-loved statue in the main precinct. Ruby always gives him a cuddle on her way through
https://flic.kr/p/qMEhAh 5th February 2015 The Beeston tramworks continue, and this junction with Middle Street remains closed south of Humber Road. It’s been over 14 months and local residents are beyond fed up. I’m actually looking forward to having a working tram system, but my patience with the repeated delays is getting thin
https://flic.kr/p/r1KvyL 1st February 2015 Ruby and I enjoyed a visit to The Bean in Beeston today, where I enjoyed one of their exceptional espressos and Ruby had a hot chocolate. While there I had a quick read of the excellent local paper The Beestonian. We love being naturalised Beestonians. It’s such a great little town…… Continue reading Beestonian
https://flic.kr/p/qSLAKr 20th January 2015 I often get to see a nice sunrise while walking over the railway bridge near the station.
https://flic.kr/p/qQYJLR 18th January 2015 Any ‘year in pictures’ of mine will inevitably have many, many pictures of Ruby. Here she is looking a good bit older than her five years. This was taken in our favourite Beeston coffee shop – The Bean
https://flic.kr/p/qMAn3C 16th January 2015 The Beeman in Beeston has been yarnbombed
https://flic.kr/p/pS7zEo 15th December 2015 Humber Road Chippy has really struggled with the tram works. Most of the large holes have disappeared but the pavements are still in disarray, and there is more to be done around here before the road opens again. Get a move on TWA!
11th January 2015 Second day in a row at Highfields Park. Our car is broken and we can walk or cycle here. Ruby has finally managed to get all the way to the top of here
