We were looking for some video of Beeston Weir, which has been quite exciting recently with all the floodwater, (please comment a link to any good recent ones) but came across this:

The Blue Plaque Scheme has now been running in Beeston and other parts of the southern Browtowe District for over two years. Since the scheme got under way in August 2010 - when the first plaque to Thomas Barton, the bus pioneer, was unveiled - the group has already delivered sixteen plaques, with two more expected to be in place before this year is up.

This scheme - which marks places in the District which are [...]

Last Wednesday evening we celebrated the 40th Anniversary of the formation of Beeston & District Local History Society and it was a very happy and enjoyable occasion.

There will be many Beeston residents who will not have a clear idea - if any - [...]
