Train of thought

The Pictures comes from http://www.derby-signalling.org.uk/index.html

This is what use to run through my village the rural idal is being slowly eroded away by modern housing estates the need for housing is paramount but the solution just seems to be to build and eat up the countryside. Rather than looking at other solutions planners just want to build build build squeezing our already over flowing schools and putting pressure on local resources and infrastructures.

The station and track has long gone and all that is there now is the station master house ... which I will get a picture of soon.

I don't want further generations of mine to visit me only to find their is now longer any green spaces except one little patch of grass left in the UK that is preserved in a museum!

Do you think we are losing our countryside ?


  1. In places we definitely are! That is a beautiful picture though :)

  2. too many people, noit enough houses, but as you say you need bigger schools, hospitals, more buses etc etc

  3. ps Big yellow taxi had trees in a museum, so maybe the grass will feel at home
