In the path of the ring road and under threat since 2000 this business carries on and has heard nothing, nothing at all, from the relevant authorities about when the road will be built. Talk about the sword of Damocles.

Oh. Apparently, and this is hearsay...according to the Derby Evening Telegraph all properties have been acquired and the road can go on full steam ahead! Someone should tell the landlord!

After years of deafening silence, the last personal contact being around 2000 and consisting of something like "Don't worry, you'll get plenty of notice", a notice to quit was received on the 10th of December from the Highways dept. We have to be out by the 12th of Jan!

We have MOVED. 56 Babington Lane! Its a lot warmer but has cost, and will continue to cost, a fortune in money and worry. This building will now be demolished to make way for the Carpet Square Island!

Its been a long time and we are now settled down the road opposite Reliance Electrical! Actually... I think we still have that remnant... the one second right.... in our new huge remnant room in the basement at 56 Babington Lane! Its like an old friend now but we could always whip it into a rug for you? Otherwise choose from the most massive range of carpets and vinyls you have ever seen at affordable prices! Anyone else out there? I know you visit!
