New retail development in saltash, Cornwall.
We must not forget that saltash is the only place within the Plymouth/plymouth suburbs with a Waitrose.Those retail units will do well at Saltash. There's an afluent population in south East Cornwall who'd probably be quite content with not having to travel into Plymouth to shop.
I know the site you're talking of. Looks like an ok design for the building. Liskeard used to be an old haunt of mine during my youth on a Saturday night :lol: Like most places the Liskeard pub scene is nothing like it used to be in the 1990's. This Wetherspoons will probably finish off one or two of the local pubs I suspect.The shitkeard pub is on the parade so right in the centre. Been an empty site for years used to be a petrol station
If it's based on 'science' (crazy idea) then Newquay has a pretty good shot as with a Space Port the closer to the equator you get, the easier it is to launch things into space.Bet it'll go to scotland
The Spaceport is not going to be whisking Richard Branson and his friends into orbit anytime soon. It'll be used for sending small commercial satellites into space. This wouldn't be a tourist attraction and it wouldn't suddenly turn Newquay airport into the Heathrow-for-Space Port. There will not be anyone needing to rush from London to catch the 5.15 from UK Spaceport (Newquay) to Lunar Base 1....Its all very well talking about an advanced 20th century space port with state of the art rocket propulsion to propel very wealthy high tech passengers into space. But to get there you have to use medieval bendy roads, negotiate piles of slurry and bales of straw and rusty swinging gates, - or by train - miles of slowly negotiating bends and other various obstacles on old DMU's (todays had a door problem & no heating) or 40 year old re-cycled HST's.
So, from the south east - a tedious 5 hour + journey. For a 6 minute ride to near space.
Yep I know of the Looe/Liskeard rivalry. Fair enough :lol: as I said Liskeard is not a place for the ambitious but then again the same can be said for every other town in Cornwall.having spent a lot of time there as a kid it is a TOTAL dump, its always raining and shrouded in drizzle, although it has improved of late but its still a dump. For the size of the place it has sod all going for it apart from a reasonable road and a rail line so you can escape! Also being from Polperro and going to Looe school there is a built in hatred of Liskeard!
Very true - as a kid, nothing worse to hear on a Saturday afternoon thanYep I know of the Looe/Liskeard rivalry. Fair enough :lol: as I said Liskeard is not a place for the ambitious but then again the same can be said for every other town in Cornwall.
