Fewer than two-thirds of speed cameras in Wales are actually turned on Image: Could not subscribe, try again laterInvalid Email Fewer than two-thirds of fixed speed cameras in Wales are actually switched on to catch drivers, it has been revealed. Figures obtained by the Press Association indicate just half of speed cameras in the UK are actually turned on. Data released by 36 of the 45 police forces in the UK found that four have no fixed speed cameras at all and 13 — including Gwent Police — have fewer than half actively catching speeding drivers. The Press Association sent a Freedom of Information request to all 45 forces and their speed camera partnerships asking how many fixed speed cameras they have and how many are active. Nine, including Dyfed-Powys Police, refused to disclose the information or failed to respond.

Drummond 5-inch Double-height Bed Photo Essay Having made, in , their first one-off lathe, by the Drummond Brothers, Arthur and Frank, were operating an engineering company from the outbuilding of a farmhouse, then some two-and-half miles from the centre of Guildford. Using just a couple of lathes, a small planing machine and a drill – all powered from an oil engine – the workshop began by turning out two types of machine: From these humble beginnings the company grew to become one of the largest employers in the area and, maintaining their independence until after the Second World War, became one of the best-known English machine-tool companies.
However, although Drummond always had a strong presence in the industrial market and expanded to supply many complex and ordinary machine tools for the motor and other trades including a now-rare small radial-arm drill , they were to become better known amongst the general public for their smaller machines starting, in with a flat-bed 3. Although the early flat-bed lathes are often referred to as the “B Type” strictly speaking that designation did not apply until the appearance of a much-modified lathe in – and after the introduction of Round Bed in , a lathe Drummond branded the “A Type”.

About Historic maps This is an outline of the history of mapping in the British Isles, concentrating on the use of maps for building history. For links to online collections of historic maps by region see image finding aids. Old Maps Online is a search engine for historical maps with a map interface. It indexes a huge number maps made available online by archives and libraries, including major online map sources mentioned below.
Itinerary maps Some of the earliest maps were designed to aid the traveller. So few survive that one might imagine that the Romans, for example, did not know what a map was. Instead we have written itineraries along the roads of Britannia. In fact the Romans did use maps, and a medieval copy of the Roman Tabula Peutingeriana , gives us an idea of what they were like.
The decline of literacy after the fall of Rome meant that few would able to read either a written itinerary or a map. If any were created for merchants and pilgrims, then heavy use and the hazards of travel presumably disposed of them long ago.
There are a number of methods by which a rifle can be dated, or at least bracketed between certain years of manufacture. For the latter, dates of introduction of military arms can be located within the Government “List of Changes” LoCs as can dates of obsolescence and of modification or upgrade to later marks. You may not necessarily find specific date information within the text of particular pages, but often the images of advertisements or catalogue entries contain some dating ‘give-away’, such as the year in which a particular rifle achieved a notable competition score by someone, but which data is in graphic format and therefore not “searchable” by a text search engine.

History of Technology Heroes and Villains – A little light reading Here you will find a brief history of technology. Initially inspired by the development of batteries, it covers technology in general and includes some interesting little known, or long forgotten, facts as well as a few myths about the development of technology, the science behind it, the context in which it occurred and the deeds of the many personalities, eccentrics and charlatans involved.
You may find the Search Engine , the Technology Timeline or the Hall of Fame quicker if you are looking for something or somebody in particular. Scroll down and see what treasures you can discover. Background We think of a battery today as a source of portable power, but it is no exaggeration to say that the battery is one of the most important inventions in the history of mankind.
Volta’s pile was at first a technical curiosity but this new electrochemical phenomenon very quickly opened the door to new branches of both physics and chemistry and a myriad of discoveries, inventions and applications. The electronics, computers and communications industries, power engineering and much of the chemical industry of today were founded on discoveries made possible by the battery.
Pioneers It is often overlooked that throughout the nineteenth century, most of the electrical experimenters, inventors and engineers who made these advances possible had to make their own batteries before they could start their investigations. They did not have the benefit of cheap, off the shelf, mass produced batteries.
For many years the telegraph, and later the telephone, industries were the only consumers of batteries in modest volumes and it wasn’t until the twentieth century that new applications created the demand that made the battery a commodity item. In recent years batteries have changed out of all recognition. No longer are they simple electrochemical cells. Today the cells are components in battery systems, incorporating electronics and software, power management and control systems, monitoring and protection circuits, communications interfaces and thermal management.

The original wiring is 6-core rubber sheathed, but the ends of the sheath are cut right back to show the individual rubber-covered cores connected to the clock mechanism and solenoids. The individual rubber coverings are coloured red, black, green, blue, brown and grey and have perished in the sun. I was fortunate in finding some 3-core rubber sheathed Amp mains cable still attached to an old Burco clothes boiler.
Removing the outer sheath revealed exactly the right red, black and green rubber covered cores in perfect condition. The rubber insulation is 3. Visually, they are similar in size to modern Amp plastic covered cables, but the strands are finer, there are more of them, and they are silver in colour. Can you help me with any of these cores?
The blue is probably in the worst condition of all. Of course, if anyone happens to have a length of the original 6-core black rubber sheathed cable, that would be perfect.

Middlesex , Sussex and Wessex during the Heptarchy. Originally recorded in AD , Essex occupied territory to the north of the River Thames , incorporating all of what later became Middlesex which probably included Surrey and most of what later became Hertfordshire. Its territory was later restricted to lands east of the River Lea. After the Norman conquest, Essex became a county.
During the medieval period, much of the area was designated a Royal forest , including the entire county in a period to , when the area “north of the Stanestreet” was disafforested. However, County Boroughs of West Ham — , Southend-on-Sea —  and East Ham — formed part of the county but were unitary authorities not under county council control.
Parish-level administration — changes A few Essex parishes have been transferred to other counties. Before , small areas were transferred to Hertfordshire near Bishops Stortford and Sawbridgeworth. At the time of the main changes around , parts of Helions Bumpstead , Sturmer , Kedington and Ballingdon-with-Brundon were transferred to Suffolk ; and Great Chishill , Little Chishill and Heydon were transferred to Cambridgeshire. Later, part of Hadstock , part of Ashton and part of Chrishall were transferred to Cambridgeshire and part of Great Horkesley went to Suffolk ; and several other small parcels of land were transferred to all those counties.
Essex became part of the East of England Government Office Region in and was statistically counted as part of that region from , having previously been part of the South East England region. Two unitary authorities In , the boroughs of Southend-on-Sea and Thurrock were granted autonomy from the administrative county of Essex after successful requests to become unitary authorities numbered 13 and 14 on the map to the right. Before , the council regularly met in London near Moorgate , which with significant parts of the county close to that point and the dominance of railway travel had been more convenient than any place in the county.

Share this article Share ‘Cassie’s Law’ was inspired by the campaigning of Ipswich mum Jackie McCord, whose daughter, Cassie, 16, was killed by a driver who could not see properly. The popular teenager was on her way to college in Colchester in when year-old Colin Horsfall’s car ploughed into her on the pavement. Cassie died from severe head injuries the next day and Horsfall died three months later, having never recovered from his injuries. But instead of stopping the pensioner carries on, forcing the frightened youth to quickly jump back, dodging the car by inches It later emerged the horror crash happened just three days after the pensioner had driven into trees when he missed the entrance to a petrol station.
Police discovered she could not read a car registration from 20 yards – the legal minimum. Officers advised him not to drive again after the first crash – while his details were sent to the DVLA – but shockingly they were not able to seize his licence, meaning he was not prevented from killing Cassie. Thanks to Mrs McCord’s campaign Cassie’s Law was introduced, giving officers the powers to immediately revoke a licence. PC Rob Andrews from Essex roads policing unit said: The pensioner – who has not been named – drove off from the scene but has been traced thanks to the footage, handed in by a worried driver who captured it ‘Having a licence revoked can be devastating for many people as it comes with a loss of independence.
However we have a duty to protect these drivers as well as the thousands of other people who use the roads of Essex. The near miss happened at 4.
