Heard they had erected a barrier at the end of the Estate! great – keep the immigrants out or better still the visitors. Alas no – its just the latest safety measure for the ‘light’ railway. Finally a level crossing barrier has been erected by the RH&DR to, hopefully, prevent the morons driving across the front of passing trains. I have witnessed this personally and it is heart stopping stuff – especially as it was not so long ago a female driver was killed when her engine was knocked over.
Apart from the excitement surrounding this new erection not a lot has happened here. Neighbour Peter is seeking pastures new – hence the sale of ‘Jesmond’ for a cool £385,000.00. A little less if purchased though this website!!
