Talking Hi All from Long Eaton

Hullo there

I lived in Loughborough from 83 until 92 when I moved to Nottingham, got married, and now live in Long Eaton. However I still have a fondness for the town, and enjoyed my stay there.

I used to live in Havelock Street, then Sparrow Hill, Cambridge Street, Queens Road, Cartwright Street, and finally Burder Street.

I always used to say that Loughborough was a melting pot of people from all over the country (I'm originally from Essex), and that most of them must've been heading up or down the M1 when they got a sudden urge to spin the wheel sharply to the left at Junction 23. It certainly felt like that to me!

I still have an interest in the place, in particular the old railways, and am documenting in photographs the current state of the old route of the Charnwood Forest Railway. Things have changed since I was there last...
