My tortoise escaped in Whaley Bridge more than 30 years ago. I wonder if it's still alive.

...if it is, it might be wishing it was a turtle...

It's fine, I heard it's just arrived in Stockport.
 Whaley Bridge - tyrednemotional anyone can describe something that has just arrived in Stockport as "fine" defeats me.....
 Whaley Bridge - No FM2R
Well, I dunno, it was coming from near Manchester so perhaps it feels very fine.

Kept a boat in Whaley Bridge 2004-2006. Never saw a tortoise.

What does Whaley Bridge and Brooklands have in common?

Shabby skimmed-thin concrete that was never up to the job.

"...according to this report:"

Clearly an open reactor core. Don't touch anything. Don't stare inside. Bury everything.

...I was rather referencing the somewhat more prosaic excerpt:

Another resident, who did not want to be named, said: "We just fled. I managed to take my nightdress and we've got the tortoise in the washing up bowl in the car." wonder she doesn't want to be named, if she's pinched BBD's tortoise.

I read that as "I managed to take my nightdress off".

Well, I hope she's looking after it. The other one died soon after.

We were staying in a caravan at the time to break the house-buying chain. Six months of hell. A family of five, a bulldog, two tortoises and a chemical toilet. Must have been 1986. If only the dam had collapsed then...
 Whaley Bridge - tyrednemotional probably burrowed its way into something to hide......
