General Chat / Level Crossing Questionnaire
« Last post by nanaandrea on 16:57:35, 14/03/16 »
Dear all,

My name is Nana Andrea and I am a fourth year student of MEng Mechanical Engineering from
University of Nottingham. For my final year project, I am conducting research on risk perception and intended behaviours at railway level crossings in United Kingdom. This questionnaire asks about risky behaviours that are observed at level crossings based on your experience as a pedestrian or car driver.
This survey would take about 20 minutes and no personal information is required. All response are strictly confidential. You must be aged 18 and above to participate in this survey. For every completed survey, we will donate 50p to Railway Benefit Fund to support railway workers in need. This incentive applies to the first 100 participants.

Please send me a message where I will send the link to the survey. Please feel free to pass this survey on to your contacts. Your opinions and time on the questionnaire is greatly appreciated. Thank you for the help.

Does anyone know anything about the St Mary Mills Dunlop Fire brigade. All I know is that Dunlop had their own small private fire service. Looking for grandpa who served in it. Any memories or pictures would be good. Many Thanks
Leicester History and Expats / Castle inn city centre
« Last post by Tilly on 17:58:31, 20/02/16 »
I am looking for family folk that I have been told ran the Castle Inn/Pub in Castle View near Leicester Castle.  I think they might have been there between 1860 to 1900. The only clue I have is that they may have been bargees before taking on the pub. Can anyone help and tell me were I might find this info.  Thank you

I am trying to find out more about George Watmough, a builder from Pitt Lane in Coleorton who spent time in Buchenwald concentration camp as a POW. I'd especially like to know if he has any descendants I could get in touch with.

Yes stay well clear of the city, Rothley, Quorn, Barrow on Soar, or around this area. Obviously Leicester is no different to many places some good some bad, however you do need to think ahead for College and University travel. Who your children interact with will have a profound impact on them, choose wisely.
