11:40am Thursday 8th May 2014

WATCHING cricket in the Lancashire League is one of life’s little treasures. There are few finer ways to spend a Sunday afternoon than to take in the action at one of the 14 famous grounds.

NELSON has long been well served with takeaways, many of which last the course and stand the test of time.

Review: Khan’s Railway Street, Nelson

10:25am Tuesday 22nd April 2014

AS I have written about on numerous occasions in this column over the years the town of Nelson cannot be accused of being short on the takeaway front.

HALF of East Lancashire had a beast of a day on Sunday.

Review: Poppadom City, Brierfield

3:15pm Thursday 21st November 2013

BRIERFIELD used to be known for its pubs. Back in the day you would need some serious stamina to make it through the town on a Friday night crawl before then heading off to the bright lights and nightclubs of Burnley or Nelson.

I’VE just spent two weeks in bonny Scotland - and I really wanted to bring you, the reader, an insight into some of the finest fast food available north of the Border.

THANKS to the happy and nearly always pleasurable knack of penning these weekly words quite a few of my mates reckon my diet consists entirely of kebabs and fried chicken - maybe even at the same time.

A DAY out in Rawtenstall normally finishes for me with the delights of the famous Ilex Chippy.

Review: Ling Hu, Clitheroe

5:37pm Friday 17th May 2013

PEOPLE assume, often with pages of evidence to back up their presumption, that I only eat kebabs and pies.

Review: DOBO, Nelson

1:46pm Friday 8th March 2013

NELSON is awash with takeaways. It seems that just about everywhere you turn there is a kebab shop, an Indian or a fried chicken franchise

Review: Flava, Nelson

10:41am Friday 1st February 2013

TAKING kebab-eating seriously can be a tough test. It can be a challenge to find a takeaway you haven’t tried before, so often the best way to approach it is by word of mouth.

Review: Dixy Chicken, Manchester Road, Nelson

5:01pm Friday 25th January 2013

IF you take a look down the list of takeaways on many a main street you could almost lose your bearings.

What's on: Spice of India, Nelson

5:09pm Friday 18th January 2013

THIS column almost didn’t exist in its form as a takeaway review as I was incredibly close to breaking my own rule — well, one of them.

Review: Poppadom City, Brierfield

5:14pm Friday 9th November 2012

The name Poppadom City is a strange one, especially as the takeaway that bears that moniker doesn't just specialise in poppadoms and is in Brierfield, which cannot be described as being a city.

A CHANGE, as the experts say, can be as good as a rest.

BRIERFIELD is a town with an ever-decreasing number of shops.

ON a damp and miserable Friday night at the end of a long week you sometimes just can’t beat a good chicken tikka masala.

4:03pm Friday 18th May 2012

THIS week I heard a story that makes you realise why it is so important that takeaways exist . . . .and why some folk would actually starve if curry houses and kebab shops were not on every side street.

Review: Captain Cook's, Railway Street, Nelson

Lancashire Telegraph: CAPTAIN COOK’S Railway Street, Nelson

3:59pm Friday 30th March 2012

OH for the good old days in Nelson, the days when you used to roll out of the El Tropicano, Blueberries or Roxy and head across to kebab heaven on Railway Street.

ALTHOUGH it is close to Colne’s main burial ground, Cemetery Chippy is definitely not grave.
