So sad to see the old beehive like that,when I was a kid a old lady who lived two doors up from us use to ask me friday night to get her 2 bottles of nourishing stout,the beehive had a side entry which ran right down to terrace road ,so we did'nt have to go on the main roads,she use to give me 3 pence each time I went,happy days,and let me have the money off the empties..
My sisters first job when she left school was at dennisons the factory next door.
jo you are quite right of course about terrace road...i noticed that when i went round the back way..how strange it that because in the past few days your sister is the second person ive heard of whos first job was at dennisons..and yes it is so sad to see the pub in such a state..
They don't care really, because it's just real estate. In Shirley on the Stratford Road there is the old CEGB Offices that were bought by a supermarket years ago because they didn't want another supermarket to be able to buy it. It's a mess, and it will always be a mess because they won't spend money on it.
There is a part of telford called hadley ,recently been re developed a super market was invited to have a site there ,tesco said yes providing the council don't allow another one near there for at least 5 years.
