Mike
The answer was Nigel Mansell.
The site was known as the Brick Yard.
Next Question.
Who walked the site, sketched it all out. Organised groups of offender to do the work. It was to be multi use.
 Races, safe driving and car repairs. Good planting scheme as well to make it very eye catching and encouraged people
to go there.
Gerald.

My "Landor-Street-bicycle-wheel-skidding-on-cobbles" was cycling between work in Meriden Street via Saltley and Hodge Hill in the 50`s.

I'm a bit of an innocent, when it comes to all things computer.
Is there actually a human doing the censoring here or is there some kind of weird software at work ?
Let's see what happens when I enter Acocks Green !

the owner of the forum has the option to tell the forum what words to bar  so he sits for a time putting the words  the software on the forum does the rest a word comes up that a no no and it will not display it

each day is a blessing and I bless each day when it comes
