Is that the D.U.Ps new treasure chest on itís way to Northern Ireland?


Comment by Gary on 19th March 2019 at 08:04
In the sixties, Standish did not have gridlocked traffic and any lorry passing through would have been a Leyland, ERF, Atkinson, Seddon or Foden.
David's picture is a real now and then image.


Comment by Mick on 19th March 2019 at 08:35
Maybe all the Leylands, ERFs, Atkinsons, Seddons and Fodens have broken down

"In the 60s Standish did not have gridlocked traffic"

Oh but it did. The A49 (like all A-roads) was far busier with goods traffic back then than it was today owing to the fact the motorway network had had still to be built.

It doesnít look big enough DTease, probably a convoy of them needed to persuade the DUP to back Brexit.

This looks more like an extension of the M6 than road through Standish village.

David...What is the exact location of this picture ?. Ray.


Comment by Rev David Long on 19th March 2019 at 14:01
On School Lane - The Beeches is to the left. Green Lane is off to the right, at the junction where the traffic lights are. St Wilfrid's, with Winter Hill beyond, visible in the distance.


Comment by Ray on 19th March 2019 at 16:24
Thank you for the info David.
Perhaps the Christian name of the
owner of the DAF lorry is Tom.


Comment by Gary on 19th March 2019 at 16:24
Small point - MikeW - the M6 past Standish opened in 1963, as far as Walsall. Heavy through traffic left the A49.
