8th March, 2014..Housing development debate rages on..!

Where are the 18 degree temperatures we were promised??? We was robbed!!! A chilly but dry spring day today, so we walked on down, past the area proposed for housing development, near Manor Farm.
I you have ever driven along here between 3.30pm and 4pm at school 'chucking out' time, you will know how chaotic Rating Lane is, without adding a new junction into a housing estate. Barrow Borough Council is pedantic about it's traffic restrictions...that will probably be enough to stop the development....aside from the fact that the fields flood regularly and the Abbey precinct wall needs preserving...
...I've heard some ridiculous schemes in my time, but this one beats the rest!!! Anyhow, rant over! For the time being, the Abbey ruins remain in tact...
It is nice to hear that Jacqui at Abbey Mill Café will be continuing to trade for another year at least...make sure you support her everyone....and any other local small businesses (SteveHillmanPhotography took another booking for 2015 this morning so HE'S happy!!).
I'm in support of anything, any projects of any type, that support our town and its future and prosperity......that's why I'm so proud of Central Ward Schools too!!'s a ranting blog today!!!
The daffodils are finally blooming down here today, and the usual hint of wild garlic is in the air!
Just caught the heron looking for his lunch!!
It is quite scary how much water is still under ground only rained a bit on Wednesday night and look what happened down here on Thursday morning...
Hardly land fit for a housing estate, is it!!
The peaceful Walney Channel skyline last night....I loved that Artists impression of the futuristic Barrow skyline in the Evening Mail earlier in the week...
 Rob Halfpenny imagining the Barrow landscape in 2164...SUPERB!

I admire local lads like him, and Dave Pooley for their artistic talent!! It's a shame about the local lads that supposedly get their accolade from the ridiculous drinking game that is buzzing around at the moment....oh no....I'm ranting again!!!
