    And better still is the fact that because of my employer being affiliated to them, if I wanted to I could have bought one of those delivery vans after the delivery department was done with it. Obviously I declined because I knew of the abuse they got!
    True this. I once had to visit Edinburgh using one of those delivery vans (it was the only transport left in the yard). I was furious. I was shirt and tie and dealing with a shop manager and they made me drive a tatty transit delivery van complete with sliding doors.
    On my return back south, I called into a saw mill. I filled the van with chunks of offcuts of pine. 2 tons of the stuff for fire wood. I then drove to my house (by now into overtime) and offloaded the whole lot. I then swept the van out and arrived back at my work place almost 4 hours late.

    Full of meaty goodness.

    As far as I'm aware the perimeter buildings have always been there and Mr Fragglehunter thinks so as well and he's so local he uses the word barm when talking about a butty.
    Don't panic, be reet!!!
