Manchester is teeming with tea rooms and hotels serving up everything from simple cream teas to platters laden with cakes, pastries and savoury treats for a more decadent experience.

We have covered the North-Eastern arm of Crossrail on various occasions. The most recent of these was to look at the Crossrail launch plan. The western section out to Reading has its own issues and, of course, there was the official decision to extend Crossrail to Reading. What often gets overlooked, however, is the three short surface sections on the branch to Abbey Wood. This article attempts to do something to rectify this by looking at the two surface stations that are being built on this branch.
Not just a new underground railway The perception of Crossrail is generally of a new underground railway across London connecting existing lines outside the central area to form a cross London railway. This is largely true and accurate but two of the surface sections on the Abbey Wood branch provide a contrast to this with one completely new station and one completely rebuilt station including new additional platforms.
As a result, there is considerable Crossrail station construction activity here and, of course, because it is on the surface, it can actually be easily seen. This is the only completely new surface station on Crossrail.

Arthur Collins, 25, sprayed the corrosive substance at Mangle nightclub in Hackney, London, on April 17 this year. Video from inside the club shows Collins grabbing a bottle containing the acid from the back pocket of an unidentified man and then “forcefully” throwing it at the face of one of the men he was arguing with.
The man falls to the floor in pain as Collins squirts the contents of the bottle twice more, splashing people on the dancefloor. Victims told police they saw “steam” rise above them and described an “all pervasive chemical smell” which made them choke. The CCTV was released today as Collins was found guilty of five counts of wounding with intent to do grievous bodily harm and nine counts of assault occasioning actual bodily harm. Police said a substance found at the scene was tested and identified as a concentrated PH1 acid solution.
Collins who was also injured stayed inside the club while clubbers who had fled desperately sought help at various hospitals. At Wood Green Crown Court, Collins had admitted throwing a bottle of fluid over clubbers but said he did not know it was acid. He said he thought the liquid was a date rape drug, which he had snatched from two men after overhearing them planning to spike a girl’s drink.
There were tears in the public gallery, which was packed with Collins’ friends and family, as the jury’s verdicts were read out. PA The couple told Ferne’s family about her pregnancy just hours before the attack Image: He will be sentenced on December

The phrase basket-type hilts refers to a large group of hilts which provide a degree of protection to the hand and wrist. Basket-hilted swords have featured prominently among British military edged weapons over the past five centuries, from the Wars of the Roses in the mid fifteenth century to the period immediately after the second Boer War of the early twentieth century.

Origins[ edit ] The concept for the series originated in with Cedric Messina , a BBC producer who specialised in television productions of theatrical classics, while he was on location at Glamis Castle in Angus , Scotland, shooting an adaptation of J. By the time he had returned to London, however, his idea had grown considerably, and he now envisioned an entire series devoted exclusively to the dramatic work of Shakespeare; a series which would adapt all thirty-seven Shakespearean plays.
He had anticipated that everyone in the BBC would be excited about the concept, but this did not prove so. Furthermore, they argued that Shakespeare on television rarely worked, and they were of the opinion that there was simply no need to do all thirty-seven plays, as many were obscure and would not find an audience amongst the general public, even in England. Disappointed with their lack of enthusiasm, Messina went over the departmental heads, forwarding his proposal directly to Director of Programmes, Alasdair Milne and Director-General, Ian Trethowan , both of whom liked the idea.

Was the LMS too big? Frederic Stansfield In his reply to my earlier letter about the size of the LMS September issue , Doug Landau November issue makes many interesting points describing the company’s engineering innovations. But two of Landau’s examples show how engineering developments within the LMS were subordinated to business issues.
LMS management’s rejection of electrification proposals, because of insufficient return on capital, is unsurprising when neither the scheme nor the one linked London with a major city such as Birmingham. Also, the belt repair system to which Landau refers represented the development in Britain of “scientific management” techniques. As he indicates, this system had the business aim of reducing repair times and costs.
