Off today and whilst its a bit cold i thought i would come for a ride to town and back just to stretch my injured muscles. I'm on old mill street where the 217/8 comes. For some reason the council have put in these huge wooden logs so people can't park in the spaces anymore. I find it somewhat petty as the cars that parked here caused no issues to passing traffic. There are a few spaces left near ancoats clinic but they of course are pay and display! Sad. Going to head into piccadilly for a coffee then back up the new road.
