I believe the Humber Works was in operation way after 1907. My father worked there as a young man and he was born in 1902. He eventually moved to Coventry with them but I think that was in the 20's. He returned to Beeston to run Wood's Greengrocery store on Queens Road for 45 years. (Leslie Wood)

Have mentioned a the two international-type grocery shops as specifics were "local shops" are mentioned because I thought they might be of specific interest to some people and they are slightly unusual on such a small shopping area. A Geek Tragedy 17:10, 8 February 2006 (UTC)

The Environment Agency have flood maps available on their website [1]. These show Beeston Rylands to be at a higher risk of flooding than the rest of Beeston. Therefore the statement that an anon IP keeps removing without explanation appears to be correct and I will restore it everytime until I get some sort of explanation for it being deleted.

Isn't Paul Smith (fashion designer) from Beeston? Can you confirm, Beeston natives? Notreallydavid 02:21, 26 November 2006 (UTC)

Yes, according to http://www.englandseastmidlands.com/News.aspx?ID=150 he himself confirms that he grew up in Beeston. Elsewhere I found (via a Google) a reference that he attended Beeston Fields Secondary Modern School for Boys. Sladen 07:39, 26 November 2006 (UTC)
Many thanks - I've put a note to this effect in the article. Notreallydavid 17:25, 29 November 2006 (UTC)

Chimney: I can confirm the existence of a tall chimney on the North side of the ex-mill (now flats) on Wollaton Road, but I can find no reference to it being the tallest domestic chimney anywhere. Citation anyone? (C P Martin, Beeston)

The Black & Gold bins and street furniure is a Nottingham thing, (Nottm City?) I don't think it has anything to do with Beeston per se or a connection to bee colours —Preceding unsigned comment added by Visionset (talkcontribs) 14:19, 8 December 2009 (UTC)
