The Featherstone Chronicle - internet version - was becoming a bit unwieldy so it was ended at 1885 and renamed The Featherstone Chronicle Part One. it contains a local history from 1086 to 1885 complete with 21 photos, 8 maps and 4 diagrams. It is easily found on Google. Not everyone is interested in ancient history, but it shows how your ancestors lived in Victorian times. Part Two is now up to 1892.

The old pop factory site has been busy for many weeks fitting drains. Seem to have missed the underground surface water holding tank being fitted before building began last week.
Not bad for one day. Usually about 2 moths to opening from this point.

The Featherstone Chronicle on line is now up to 1882. Recent issues have covered the planning and opening of Purston Church (intended to have a spire - see the original sketch), the night the winding rope broke at Snydale Colliery killing eight men, the installation of street gas lamps, and much more with illustrations by Tony Lumb. If you are interested in how your grandparents or great grandparents lived have a read.

For almost 3 months business's in Station Lane have had a lot to put up with. Amongst the problems is power cuts. WMDC were informed of the problem s and a host of others before they began the new footpaths that were due to be ready for "election time". After 16 power cuts at last WMDC has had to allowed repairs. So half way in to the footpath farce they have now been dug up twice with more holes to come. An our Featherstone Cllrs do know so it appears they have their head in the political sand...... Shocked

A unusual post there Old Stonian not sure what you mean by "not much chance of that". The Author of the Featherstone Chronicle also owns the copy right and has apparently left it to a relative to publish which has happened in the last month  Grin
Still a good read. This is the link,

There was a request on this web site in 2008 for old issues of The Featherstone Chronicle. There's not much chance of that but it is on the internet and is now up to 1873. Type "The Featherstone Chronicle" into your search engine, the quotation marks are important, and see if it suits.

A fun set of traffic lights has arrived for up to a week on Station Lane. At peek times everything stops. The new rat run is around the precinct full of pedestrians.
An interesting point raised today. Why is so much effort being made to apparently get a gas pipe to the Old KwikSave site? Huh

Was it something that was said? Grin
7.50am this morning contractors arrive and removed the soil. They lifted the stones from the wall and swept up. Bizarrely they then lent the stones back on the wall that a complaint had been made about. Half a job as usual and as usual not a Cllr complaining..... Roll Eyes
