E622 NEW, Sunday 13/03/16 Kings Lynn

Post by traineefarmer » Sun Mar 13, 2016 7:27 pm

I followed this car a Green 825i saloon through the KL one way system all the way to the docks today. It looked lovely condition, but also like it was in regular use. Put mine to shame.

Anyone we know?

I followed it from near the bus station to the retail park near the docks. I was wondering if the driver had clocked another 800 following and I tried to pull up beside it at traffic lights to speak to the driver but kept getting blocked by other cars.

Long time since i've been to Lynn apart from the Hardwick Retail Park so i didn't even know there was one near the docks now! Was also quite surprised to see a Sainsburys where Frigoscandia used to be! :? :shock: :roll:

Some of the Frigoscandia site is still active (as Pinguin Foods). The Sainsburys was built on the site of the huge warehouse (landmark or eyesore?) that had apparently been empty and unused for years. Unfortunately someone has miscalulated the foundations on the new superstore so one end is slowly sinking into the marsh. If you walk down the corridor to the cafe toilets there is loads of new cross bracing that has been retrofitted to the structure to stop the windows cracking!

The retail park near the docks was built some time ago on a brownfield site that was formerly the works of Frederick Savage. :(

I still can't believe they built a housing estate between the Hardwick Ind Est and Fairstead! Many moons ago i stayed with a girlfriend ni Fairstead and walked to work the next morning across the "water meadow" - a couple of times i sunk in almost up to my knees!
With that in mind i'm amazed they built that Sainsburys there but not in the least surprised about the additional bracing. Not actually been in, only saw it just over a week ago on my way back from somewhere in Lincolnshire after collecting an LPG kit but traffic was queueing out of the petrol station and also queueing to get in the car park!
Know roughly where you mean about the docks, even longer since i was in that part of the town!
Cheers,
Dave
