    1. The History They are two ornate entrance lodges (one also acts as a bridge) situated on the former Ballysaggartmore Demesne, about 2.5 kilometres from the town of Lismore in County Waterford, Ireland. They were constructed for an Anglo-Irish Landlord, Arthur Keily-Ussher around 1834.

    1. The History Affane, meaning "Central Ford", is a small village in west County Waterford, Ireland. Here can be found the ruins of a Church of Ireland church, located within a graveyard. The parish church of Affane, listed as Athmethan and valued at over £6 in the ecclesiastical taxation (1302-1306) was located south of the ruins. By the mid-16th century it had been united with the church of Dungarvan, but in a visitation of 1588 it was in the Deanery of Ardmore. Earlier, in 1564, it was the...

    1. The History Continuation of my earlier report on the Loxley Valley so please see HERE for a fuller history. Found a bit more info on the impact of the flood. The valley was badly hit by the Great Sheffield flood of 1864. Thomas Marshall & William Crapper, Clay & Brick Dealers, claimed £1,217 in insurance including the loss of 2,600 tons of clay and the loss of brick production for 26 weeks at 30,000 Bricks per week.

    This old pub has not been done in a while so this is a bit of an update on the place Not a lot of history about apart from it pulled its last pint and severed its last sunday roast around 2002 due to its location slammed bang right next to one way traffic on the A505. going by the decor you can see it was once a nice village pub/family restaurant fighting for trade on this very busy road. over the years since closure it had planning turned down to be transformed into a budget hotel but in...

    The business were all given notice to vacate by September 2017 and the airfield has become increasingly derelict since. I rented a hangar for my aircraft until 2019 but no flying was allowed, fortunately managed to find an alternative hangar elsewhere. It will be interesting to see how the runway removal proceeds as the foundations are particularly deep because of the boggy nature of the area, I understand from locals that the farm on which the airfield is built was so wet that it was known as...
