    Well by all accounts there's plenty of the white stuff in Glossop at the moment!

    Graham - your last comment is not far from my own thoughts!!! :Laughing:

    Heard there's been a big explosion - don't know any more details at the moment!

    Some photos Here.

    Seems the main A57 is closed as a result so there won't be much moving in or out of Glossop today.

    I thought exactly the same thing as a lot of people as i bought my van from glossop caravans and had nothing but trouble.Then i realised it is the service centre which is completely different site to the sales pitch and all the vans belong to customers.:Sad:

    i had nothing but problems with my van in and out for work for problems they said didn't exist so if someone had same problem after spending say £16k they're going to be disgruntled.but i wouldn't go to the exterme of causing a fire.i just told them i was coming for my money back and would get it by force if need be and wouldn't leave til i got it.they didn't want me causing a stink in the sales office.which i would've

    Yep, hubby just tried to go that way. Smoke still rising from the building apparently and the investigators are going in.

    So is it the new service centre at Woolley Bridge and not the main sales area at Brookfield?

    Hi Marie, how are you not seen you since cotton arms get together. Think he said it looks like the accessory area where the awnings etc are.

    I've seen that posted on another forum but I'm not sure. According to the BBC Here the A%7 is closed between Shaw Lane and Wooley Bridge, which suggests it is the sales area.

    Also, some of those photos I referred to earlier are apparently taken from Cottage Lane and the Trans Pennine Trail on the Gamesley side of Glossop Brook.

    P.S. Marie you got Fun a mention on the Virtual Glossop web site

    I'm getting confused Graham! There's mention of Woolley Bridge being affected but that's a bit far from the sales area and Anthony McKeown's photos do look like the sales area!

    All will be revealed!
