  2. Forum Issues
    . I was very surprised to discover that "Harlow Town" (one of the UKs original 'New Towns') has almost NEVER been mentioned over all the years, here on SSC! OK, it could be said that if people had been interested in the town and/or if interesting developments had been happening there, then it...
  3. Essex, Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire

  7. Sunderland and Durham
    1200 new jobs at Nissan according to the Evening Chronicle, quite unprecedented investment by a motor maker in a Western European plant. Dare we dream of a mini-boom in industrial jobs in the North East? Could have very positive ramifications for many planned (and not yet planned)...
  8. East Anglia
    After watching EM News Today I remembered that Peterborough is also part of the East Midlands... Never heard of a poster from there though. Maybe this thread might trigger a few peoples attentions from some searches in google... Anyway... i've done a little research to see what I can find...
  9. Birmingham Metro Area
