I have a hand-written list of local history, including buildings, which can be linked to the 35 bus route and it has already reached sixty, with more I want to check out before adding them to my list.
Then a second serendipity occurred. NCT announced that sometime in 2014 double-deck buses will be returning to the 35 bus route, so with luck the two events will happen at about the same time.
At 70 I am ready for more changes than just moving house. I have no committees to attend and my only 'commitment' as such will be to organising the Angel Row History Forums in Nottingham Central Library, which are now in their fourth year, for Nottinghamshire Local History Association (NLHA) in partnership with the city's Local Studies Library.
At some point this blog will take second place to History By Bus, which I see as a prompt to ensure I get out and about more often (by bus of course). Some of you may have noticed already that I posted a entry about the Erewash valley on the new blog yesterday. The map is new, but the rest is recycled material. It is early days yet and I am still working through ideas, so watch this space!
