  4. A 'Dead Ringers' special had just started on Radio 4, so I may have been shaking with laughter at the time, so it was cancelled out.
  5. So, GCH building on more open spaces, but you're still doing better for green spaces than Barton & Tredworth, who don't seem to rate a Youtube video...
  6. Last week
  7. My partner is descended from the Theyer family of Brockworth. She did quite a bit of digging and cross-checking into the family tree shown in the aforementioned book. For anyone wondering the book the original poster mentions is by Canon William Bazeley, the vicar at Matson in the early part of the last century.
  8. Did anyone else feel that? About twenty minutes ago now, house shook twice pretty vigorously.
  9. Thanks. Hope you enjoyed the pics
  10. Hi Eddie, I've just found this thread as my ancestors founded Cope Chat. It was originally set up Canada and brought to Stroud by Albert Mann. Albert Mann was my mother's great uncle (grandfathers brother). He lived in a house called Sallymount in Rodborough Common, where my mother Carolyn Mann visited. I'll try and find a photo of him and post it up. Thanks for posting these photos you found!

  12. Hi Thanks for that. Still intend going to the Glasshouse in June for my birthday, but might try this other place out another time. Thanks again Paul Harries
  13. Skimmers are basically used to filter the surface of any liquid material. Pond Skimmers are made to keep the surface of a pond cleaner so there must be no impurities in it. It will filter out the surface, even if a leaf somehow drops in the water. There are a variety of Pond Skimmers available at https://pondsuppliesforless.com you can visit and get more information about the Pond Skimmers.
  14. Another good one to try is The House in the Tree http://www.houseinthetree.co.uk/
  15. Hi If I had the means to go I would. I love aircraft, having served in RAF for 6 years. Looks like everyone's in for a real treat! Thanks Paul Harries
  16. Hi Took the family for a meal here yesterday. Not so impressed. For: 1) Massive choice in menu. 2) Excellent starters. Against 1) My steak was bit gristly 2) No whipped cream for my sister's luxury hot chocolate. May be that they had a bad day with my steak. My brother in law loved his black pudding starter and the burgers looked great.. I just have better memories of the Glasshouse, Mill Hill that Eddie showed me. Will return to Glasshouse for my birthday in June. Paul Harries

  20. We had New Windows and Double Glazing fitted by Severn Windows. last Year and were very Pleased., Although they were neighbours at the time they are still based in Gloucester and Stroud.
  21. Delighted to see that my recent book on the history of the old Birdlip communications station warrants a mention on this forum! Having sold out all my initial print run I am now working on a revised, enlarged edition and wonder if anyone can recall the camp at Brockworth that housed some of the staff at this station? Additional billeting was provided at a camp at Witcombe for this receiver station and its transmitter site at Winstone. If anyone has ANY information/photographs, no matter how trivial on any of these sites or the two radio stations, I would be delighted to hear from you. Any photographs submitted will be returned. Many thanks, Colin McKeeman banterops@icloud.com

  24. Hello Everyone, I've had some ludicrous quotes from the big companies and was hoping someone might have a recommendation for a local small business or independent fitter to replace windows and doors in the Charlton Kings area. Just don't want to be ripped off and would like to give business back to the community. Any suggestions welcome, and thanks in advance! James.
  25. I am doing some research on my past family history.. My great grandmother was working as the head house keeper at bowden hall, when lord Bowden owned it, she used to live in the row of cottages off the grounds I think, and which were built for his servants.. The Lord ( had an extra marital affair with my great grand mother and she had a son to him..but before the birth he paid the head grounds man to take her away. Think he must have been a Hathaway as we now have that name. I know the lord had one son left who sold the hall, but I wanted to know what happened to him? My father found this out through his mother who kept the secret until her death bed. I have been a searching online about the family but it's very limited.. Was his name bowden or Birchall?
