BBC Doomsday Project
« on: May 12, 2011, 10:18:02 am »
I've been looking at the BBC Doomsday Project which was put together in 1986

http://www.bbc.co.uk/history/domesday

There's lots of articles by local kids (of the time) about the local area as well as photos. Very interesting to see what has stayed the same and what has changed!

Interesting to see the picture of the station car park, full of cars,

and the questions from the children asking if the car park is adequate or should it be extended. How sweet and innocent, if only they knew.

The picture of the village roads looks unconjested. ( I guess because all the cars are parked in the car park)

Those were the days when we all had a simpler life, before mobile phones , Sky Tv and ipads!!!
