School warning signs and beacons, 3rd October

Wed, 03 Oct 2018 22:27:25 +0100
53.570174 -2.782303

Either side of the school on Cobb's brow lane, there are school warning signs accompanied by amber warning beacons. The beacons are not lit during the ingress and egress of children to the school, yet i have seen the beacons working when the school is closed, on a Saturday afternoon, suggesting that the timing mechanism is incorrectly set. Please can this be reviewed urgently, before a child is seriously injured, as large heavy goods vehicles use this stretch of road to reach the nearby quarry, while vehicles travelling from the north run the gambit, by driving on the wrong side of the road, due to the parked cars collecting or setting down children at the school.

The Redesign is Underway

Well, the current website was absolutely in dire need of a good redesign - from the ground up. So I set out to pull it all apart and get it up and running again to become the most comprehensive guide to every postcode in the UK. And it's been a long, tough job from start to finish - and quite possibly the biggest project I've ever undertaken.
