Problem is making money with these Fridges. They cost a fortune to put up and run and the key question is will it be sustainable in Middlesborough.
The Chill FactorE in Manchester has struggled to make money so whether it is viable is another question entirely!


Yup,
Swindon, Bristol, Cardiff - all been through the planning - none have ever been built!

You forgot Weston-Super-Mare which didn't even have a hill to help it get started.

Middlesbrough council are throwing money at projects to regenerate Middlehaven. The new bridge that was required before the snow dome can be built is due to be finished in 2 months.

They are still building the access bridge. That should be completed mid July then I would anticipate that work will begin on the site

I'm retiring and moving to Stockton on Tees next month, so a Snow Dome in Middlesborough would be ideal. But i just can't see it happening. House of Fraser is pulling out of both Darlington and Middlesborough, M & S is closing in Stockton. There's no money.

On the other hand I am looking forward to exploring the possibilities of the Pennine ski areas.

Spud9 Word on the streets locally is that the snowdome is more than likely to happen. Watch this space...

The Pennines ski areas are great - you'll love them. Especially if you just take them as you find them and don't expect Utah champagne powder and Courchevel facilities.

PS: As a soon to be Teessider you need to know that there's only one 'O' in Middlesbrough wink

Yup, a hanging offence as would be 1 x S in Teesside, although as a Boro lad i have no idea why the town and its team are known as The Boro as it blatantly should be The Brough

Mountain Addict/ Frosty the Snowman thanks for the spelling advice. I should know better; I was born and brought up in Stockton. I've been down south too long.

@Frosty the Snowman, @mountainaddict, Quick question, how do you both pronounce Middlesbrough? Do you accent MiddlesBOrough or MiddlesbROUGH? Just I always hear it pronounced as Boro but a friend always pronounces it Brough

People from "the Burra" (as the locals affectionately call it, rather oddly, with a strong flat U sound...as in took) often pronounce it as "Middles-bro" when they are trying to be posh! Shocked

That Middles-bro thing really winds me up! Imagine hearing someone split it up to say Peter--bo--ro... rolling eyes

I can also add that I have heard some (but not many) mainly Stockton residents pronounce the footy team as 'The Borrer.'

The new bridge to allow access to the site is in place, with completion slated as this month.

Construction of the fridge is due to begin by spring next year, according to the local rag in July.
