"So the road between Hampton Court and Church Street will be resurfaced commencing Oct 30th. Nice enough, but what's the betting Thames Water within 2-3 months dig it all up again. Absolute shambles."

Bushey Park gates at Hampton Court.

I apologise for raising this subject again, but I get so angry every time passing the gates and still seeing those monstrous buildings each side. I accept that the former so called DeJa Vu bar & grill has been demolished, but nothing much seems to be happening on the site. On the other side of the gates the hideous boarded up Liongate Hotel still stands as an eyesore. I find it hard to believe that visitors from all over the world cannot fail to be disgusted when seeing this, our national…See More

Sue C replied to Mike Newson's discussion Chinook helicopters over Hampton
"They`re probably just going back to their base near Hook.  The flight path largely follows the Thames because they have to be near open spaces where they can land if they have a technical problem."
