Demolition
 Demolition   by Mick Byrne  (Panasonic TZ100)
Demolition men at the old bakery on Cale Lane.

A video here of the demolition, you can still smell the bread.

I miss the lovely smell of baking dough that used to waft over the fields.Having said that I'm glad the building taking place is on a brown field site.

It wouldn't matter if it were on Greenberg as they will still built on it. How many times do you see on the news trying to stop development on greenbe!t land, and after the protests cease what halpens? they build on it.


Comment by Mick on 25th March 2019 at 15:47
I was told by the estate agent that all the new streets are going to be name after types of bread
Hovis, Wheatgerm, Farmhouse and Wholemeal are just some of the ones she mentioned


Comment by Dirty Harry on 25th March 2019 at 17:46
Mick how can you smell the bread
When there isn’t a bakery anymore


Comment by Alan on 25th March 2019 at 19:17
Demolition men where?


Comment by britboy on 26th March 2019 at 03:33
I loved the aroma of freshly baked bread when I went passed the place going to work at NCB Kirkless central workshops, a wet behind the ears teen.


Comment by Helen of Troy on 26th March 2019 at 09:01
Well, I for one would think long & hard about living in Wholemeal Close ?
Some people (housebuilders ) have no imagination at all....wonder they havent come up with Bake Off Square !


Comment by DTease on 26th March 2019 at 09:53
How about ‘Jam Butty Terrace’? Or ‘Slap Alley’?


Comment by Veronica on 26th March 2019 at 09:57
Bloomer Alley
Sunblest Avenue
Dough Way Drive
Yeast Fold
French Stick Point
Crusty Cob Rise


Comment by DTease on 26th March 2019 at 09:59
Or ‘Sugar Butty Street’? Or ‘Conny Ony Close’? Or ‘ Self Raising Road’? Or....


Comment by Poet on 26th March 2019 at 10:39
Crumpet Close. Interesting.


Comment by Philip G. on 26th March 2019 at 12:21
Perhaps Nimble Nook for those who are fleet of foot, and Doorstop Dingle for those less so.


Comment by veronica on 26th March 2019 at 12:49
Seedy Drive,

We should apply for a slice of the dough in naming these roads......


Comment by Veronica on 26th March 2019 at 14:06
Oven Bottom Passage / Pass......
I had best stop now before the Bobby comes!


Comment by DTease on 26th March 2019 at 18:55
I once had an attack of that ‘Oven Bottom Passage’ Veronica.
I put it down to Greenhall’s Bitter.
