Greetings All, my first attempt at this online caper, so please be patient. My second bus, spotted it at Stanford Hall this year, after a swift sale of my previous split this cheeky rascal was purchased from Jonesy at Boatyard. Hats off to him for resurecting it, my only input so far has been to drive it. The story is it sat in a forest in northen Sweden from 1973, being used as a cabin by the local forestry blokes for approx. 30 years until ripe then picked ,shipped, and rescued. To date everybody except 1 person has started their conversation with either "what colour are you going to spray it" or "it`ll be nice when its done", i really don`t know why.[img][/img] i have attempted to put a photo or two in here, lordy knows if it made the trip. if this all goes up in flames i`ll try again eventually.Many thanks dom67 for posting the pics, available now in the intro section.

Stamford has got to be one of the least chaviest towns in the country... go anywhere else and i'd put money on it you will see more hanging around and causing trouble...

i love Stamford, i wouldn't live anywhere else unless it was to be next to the sea in Cornwall... but then i'd be cut off from so much more so i'll stay here. Smile

It's easy to forget what a beautiful old town we live in here, i drove through the other day and tried to view it as if i'd never been here before... it's simply stunning i would say, just a damn shame most the old shop fronts in the high street got ruined in the 60's and 70's Sad

Stamford is a nice place to live- unless you want to drive through it or park in town, then it's a bit of a pain Rolling Eyes

I wouldn't say stamford is full of chavs- public school kids more like.

I don't think people actually appreciate the architecture and history of stamford. I even did a first year university assignment on the landscape planning of stamford

Very Happy

Stamford was designated the first conservation town in the UK and has an abundance of original Georgian and Victorian buildings....those people out there who appreciate VW design for example, would love to see our town centre.....see www.stamford.co.uk.......we also have a parking problem which is not just a problem for people visitiing the town but is a real problem for residents who live in the centre, and there are many who just don't have any parking space....this is an historical issue to do with SKDC....

There is also a long running debate over a bypass and juggernauts....

Apart from that in the evenings in summer we get overwhelmed by people coming from local villages and towns who want to come and have a good time because all our pubs and bars and restaurants are so close together....we are probably the nations best pub crawl.....but don't blame the result of this on people who live in the town who generally do appreaciate the culture of the place, the history, and who are not chavs........

If anyone thinks we are overrun with chavs, check out Kettering, Corby and Northampton.......

Before we moved here in the early 80s we lived for 17 years in London......if ever there was a turning point in our lives it was leaving the smoke to start a family in this amazing town.....Stamford rocks !!! :bounce:

Having said that I totally agree with Tim that I can see an idyll which is in Cornwall high up overlooking the sea......retirement !!

Having said that I was born and grew up in Malvern .....anyone who has been to Vanfest can appreciate that ole place........

You also gotta remember that this is Tim's forum and he is a Stamfordian, so a lot of us locals are on the forum because he has worked on our buses....

I doubt that Stamford has for some bizarre reason more than an average number of bus owners......You rarely see any around here....

Thinking about it, no we're not all Spinners....the Spinners tend to fall asleep late in the evening in a tent at shows with a few tiny sausages still on the barbeque, empty Budweiser tins strewn around the place and wearing very heavy puffer jackets (I avoided the A word) and wooly hats, even in mid summer.....
