What was going on?
« on: May 06, 2009, 07:27 PM »
Drove into Oldham today via Oldham/Ashton Road this morning. As I crossed the border of Ashton & Oldham I saw 2 Policemen on motorbikes near Bardsley Church, 2 Police cars a bit further up, all parked up and pointing towards Ashton looking as if they were waiting for something or someone. Anyone any idea what was going on, it was too early to be waiting for a chippy to open. ???

Hi Vanessa. It's a regular thing in Bardsley. They are checking number plates with cameras for car tax and insurance dodgers.

I'm not sure I'll take a look next time I drive up, I think the nearest might be near Park Cake.

Hi Very sad about the Horseshoe.The Black Diamond was a popular I remember the Landlord Josh Walker he was from when I was a kid.I remember when I was old enough to in the pub,I was looking around and Josh said "do you like it if you dont buggar off"I told him who I was he replied "hows your Mam Dad?" And he gave a drink on the house.

I was driving up Bardsley Brew and I'm sure I saw a sign outside the Horseshoe saying it was under new management, can anyone confirm this, I couldn't look properly as I was driving.
