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

So lets imagine that someone does care about the look of their property in Station Lane and spends hard earned money doing so.
Less than a month after several thousands were spent on this property by its owner, without permission their property has been attacked by workmen vandals. The Yorkshire stone flags owned by the property have been lifted and lent against the property. Then the soil from a hole has been lent against them. The damage will be revealed shortly.
As usual not a Cllr in sight although they drive past more than once a day? Roll Eyes

For the last few years CCTV prices have been dramatically falling, quality has been going up and what a CCTV camera can actually do is only limited by what we can think up. Coupled with huge amounts of section 106 money and companies wishing to buy good will it was obvious that the Government followed by local councils would pick up on money making ideas. I would love to say they are for our security but as the police almost do not exist anymore I think we can rule that reason out.
The reasons for using lamp posts and traffic lights amongst some locations you would not have considered is that there is power to run the cameras and internet links. Although cameras have come a long way the best results are still with the aid of some form of lighting. A lamp post is probably the best location to place a CCTV camera.
At the moment WI-FI is a fairly secure form of transmission although there are already reports of hackers breaking in to signals.
Given the area we live in and the people who serve us I assume their use will not be just for making money but also for an extension to the "Big Brother" conspiracy.
There are many links associated. This is quite a clear one,

Does anyone know what the new black wifi cameras are on the lamp posts that have begun to appear all over the district?

A reply has appeared from Northern Gas,

We are due to finish the project today, we endeavour to be off site and the road to be open as usual by the end of business today.  We have another project starting on Wilson Street tomorrow which may require temporary traffic lights to be put on Station Lane on Thursday as we will require a crossing closure on Station Lane.  This project is due to last 2 weeks and the temp traffic lights will only be required for one week of this, there is a meeting taking place with the highways authority tomorrow to see if they will allow us to use the temporary traffic lights so until this has been confirmed I unfortunately cannot give you a guarantee on the method of works, I will however let you know as soon as I have feedback regarding the meeting.
