Goose Lane Pembroke

On the JUDP as an Ancient Monument this curved limestone wall was to the height of the first floor. It had been pointed with cement sand in the recent past which led to the decay of the rubble infill. The wall has been rebuilt by breeze blocks with a thin stone cladding. The rounded corner has been demolished to allow a door and vision for the users of the door. You can see from the photograph that there is a blue door with an ample apperture towards the rear to site the one door. This should have been considered at the Planning Application stage not when building is almost complete.

dear sir
as i have been a builder and resident in pembroke for over 70 years i find it hard to understand how you could make such comments? firstly this is not part of the town wall.
secondly the original building on the site, was an old brick garage and loft in a dangrous condition,
id just like to add that hands up to the owner for a exellent job on such a drap old place.

H simpson said...

dear mr Campbell,
after reading your comments i feel the need to reply, i think the building work is only improveing the area. maybe your time would be of better use finding out what stone has been used on the new infomation center on the commons because it is not limestone as existing, or even use your time playing bowls and leave the good people of pembroke making it a better looking town.

Ivor Bigcook said...

that wall was really thick , i remeber crashing my car into it in 1988, austin allegro ,it was alovely runner, totally written off. so im glad there knocking that old building down !! HUMMPPPHHH.

R bucket said...

Ben Dover said...

by any chance was the allegro a 1976 1300 super 4 door, because i have a near side frount wing and trackrod ends for sale, is she burning a lot of oil or is she leaking? are you restoring her. drop us a line had quite a few myself.

S Moss said...

Allegro Club International, sunday 18th oct at patrick motor museum. great day out boys, ill be attending myself, why not drop in lots of ods and ends im sure you'll find what your looking for! good look with the build keep us updated.

ivor wrench said...

cant wait a sunday is a burger van going 2 b there thankskejbxrfh

S Moss said...

sorry ivor. we dnt have a burger van at our allegro events, but a man called Mick who uses his 1974 mk1 allegro van to sell sandwiches, a very rare allegro infact, only 7 in the UK, he found it smashed up in a wall, years ago and restored her. fine example hope to see you their. forgot to post it starts at 8am

Anonymous said...

I remember your allegro hitting the wall in 1988 as I walk my zebra spot down the lane each day to go shopping. He drank some of the water that came out of your radiator and it made him sick for ages, but youll be glad to here hes fine now. probably in better nick than your old Allegro. I used to have a mule for years but as he got older he got quite frisky with old codgers normally English ones with nothing better to do than walk around town complaining. Infact he reamed one right out. Oh yes about the wall its not part of the town wall and a vast improvement on what was there hope whoever is doing it up will be very happy there.

Albert said...

B BIRD said...

IAN CAMPELL SEEMS TO HAVE TO MUCH TIME ON HIS HANDS GETTING INVOLVED IN OTHER PEOPLES LIVES.PERHAPS HE SHOULD DO SOMTHING WORTHWHILE LIKE BINGO

los lobos said...

I have a 1976 mustard coloured Vanden Plas she's mint even has a vinyl roof and original 8track, and i would love to be a part of your club.Please advise of your next meeting.

austin said...

hi guys looks like youve got an interesting forum going, just wondering why some bloke has wrote a load of rubbish about houses and trees on an allegro club forum, could any one answer that? any way they call me austin because i love allegro's so much.

tacman said...

Might interest someone on this site, just found a 1977 Vanden plas on auto trader 72000miles, leather seats, walnut dash, rear picnic trays AND a new exhaust. Sounds like a bargain at just £425. Think i might view it myself as mines loosing a bit of oil these days.

mr b. eans said...

tac man did the vanden plas have a vynl roof. had one myself started to fade but i sorted it out with boot polish. the old girl is a bit bouncy on the back end can any one out their help because the pit bull keeps being sick on seats

tacman said...

Yes Mr b. eans had the same problem with mine bouncing in the back. You need to weight her down a bit, 2 bags of skimming should do the trick. Think the 1500 vanden plas did have a vinyl roof at one time but some one tried to take it off. Looks like an open tin of spam close up. Hope this sorts your bouncing back end out. Best of luck to the pitbull.

ivana tinkle said...

Might be able to help you out with some skimming. Had a couple of bags left over from my own place. You can have them for free as i also have an austin allegro and would love to be part of your club. Mines a 1500 HL (high line). Not the best looker but I wouldn't swap her for the earth. Looking for a new wing mirror for mine if you can help get back to me.

robin banks said...

Betty Swollocks said...

OOOOOOHhhhh!!! I lost my cherry in the back of a brown vanden plas allegro ...parked off gooses lane in 1979 ithink it was late july ..does that mean i am applicable to join your allegro club...please wn luv Betty Swollocks

Ben Dover said...

Q. BASHER said...

I av done debbie said...

I would like to see an allegro built into the wall at the top of ganders lane to show the visitors to our town of Pembroke something worthy to look at. ALso, I would like to see the old castle at the other end of t town demolished and used to fill up the mill pond to creat more parking space for us allegro lovers to do some midnight or even daytime dogging

Dick Bawls said...

Betty Swollocks said...

Debbie d.Dallas is a stinking old trout !!

mr thomas said...

as i am a keen allegro owner i think this site should be stoped or its users show respect.myself and the wife have been very upset by your site.

b. good said...

dear mr thomas you are as interesting as that old git moaning about people improving the town of pembroke.get a life and have a massage off debbie d dallas and treat yourself to some extras.and i agree no benders in our club.is it true tac-man won the lottery

b shitter said...

o ino who tac-man is now he the one that look like a gringo.i think he is a virgin.

gringo said...

yup you got the right tacman. but whos mr thomas. does he have geese age 40ish but with the body of a small boy.

Mr Thomas, OBE & MGB said...

REPLY TO GRINGO: I know geese can live to a ripe old age, and can be of different colours to their parents but I have never heard of a goose reaching 40 ish ! I am a respectable old fart but am very much a true Allegro Fanatic - who are you to speak about the history of this ancient town and it's motormobiles you foreign nationalist. Are you also a bumper bender?

IV.A. HARDONE said...

dear mr campell i live in pembroke ,have done all my life to be honest who are you and what is your goal in life.let me answear that one for you, to be the biggest pain in the arse to people you can be. well let me tell you somthing mr arse pain bloody glad to see that wall down had lotty up against it pissed up one night SO YOU THINK I LIKE LOOKING AT THAT WALL EVERY DAY.

mr h bishop said...

dear mr campbell as i agreed with you on the case with that little man from the east end of pembroke trying to claim land from the mill pond and stop the people using a public footpath what a joker he was never mind he learned the hard way and lost.i feel that the building work on gooses lane is an improvment to the area. i await your comments

Dr D.W James said...

As a youngster I used to walk down the path detailed above. I recently tried to walk down there only to be verbally abused by an old man living towards the4 middle of the street, then the small man you mentioned came out of his house and stared at me in a most uncomfortable way. (I left never to return, what a shame great fishing down there.)

billy b shitter said...

hi my name is billy got a proplem with the allegro,she seems to have lost power on the hills,smoking her guts out,and knocking like my grannys knees,also boilng on short runs (dont no about long runs petrol tank leaking)90% rust, water leaking through flool,bald tyres no M.O.T TAX,windscreen cracked ,no radio will swap for a mondeo or a mini ps they must be in good working order.

MR I.AM .ANGRY said...

Joe Mangle said...

BOB said...

Allegro Owners Club
Hi Guys great rally the weekend, glad ivor brought the burger van made for a great day sitting on the curved wall at the bottom of gooses lane sipping tea and eating a burger, enjoyed all the gossip about the good old days of austin and british leyland, bring them back.

dr d.w. james said...

In reply to mr i am angry i would just like to inform you that the word is urinate not p**s. thick head.

the little man .east end said...

dr james do you have plenty of time on your hands like mr campbell?well join the bingo club you would enjoy that more than being apain in the rectum like campbell.

L . LOVELACE said...

READ THE LETTER IN THE LOCAL PAPER (the western telegraph)mr no it all is afame seeker i think.ps i heard he on mobility,yet anouther scrounger just like MC NEEF

D.S.S said...

hey thats anough of that ,mc neef used to own an allegro when he worked for the st johns.only joking about the working part.i dont think he was guilty anyway.that wasnt running on the national news more like wobling like a big fat duck.

D COTTON said...

I also have lots bof time on my hands and do alot of walking around Pembroke. I too have spotted that shifty looking little character down Little Gates Hmmmm not quite sure what to think but you wouldn't fancy him fitting a kitchen in your grannys house. Reminds me of Monty Burns.

bush basher said...

BARNY RUBBLE said...

Barney rubble before you try to make out your clever writing on our alegro web site you might want to learn to spell thick head. (syndrome not sindrome ha ha ha ). you stupid and i might have a hairdressers car cos ive got hair not a cats arse.

bush basher said...

You might have hair but yer face is likes a cats arse cos you live on a mountain like the hill billies with dogs and chickens sh@t everywhere is your last name Walton, ??
