If however, you are looking for fascinating facts about the area then feel free to read on. Leicestershire is an inland county bordered by 7 other East and West Midlands counties. First mentioned in the Domesday book the county takes its name from Leicester the county town. Leicester is the site of an ancient roman fortified town and relics of roman baths and walkways have been found beneath it. In the industrial revolution its factories were skilled in engineering, producing shoes and also hosiery. The towns industries have always been boosted by immigration to work in it's businesses and the city has the largest Caribbean Carnival outside London and also the largest Diwali celebration outside India. Also known for it's University where Sir Richard Attenbourough, the famous wildlife film-maker, grew up. Called the sport capital of the UK it has Championship side Leicester City Football Club, Leicester Tigers Rugby Union Club - and of course Leicestershire County Cricket team. Stoke on Trent (the home HQ of Castle Comfort Stairlifts) and Leicester have a lot in common. Their soccer teams, Stoke City and Leicester City have enjoyed the services of two of the greatest goalkeepers the world has ever known - Gordon Banks and Peter Shilton. See our stairlift cartoon with Peter Shilton here getting his own back on Diego Maradona for that infamous 'hand of God' goal. And believe it or not, Keith the founder of Castle Stairlifts uses the services of his friend 'Diegito' when visiting Argentina. See here an Englishman and an Argentine with the Falklands and football very much forgotten! Leicester was also the home of the person responsible for setting up this now national stairlifts company. Robin Linnell of Acorn Stairlifts, many years ago, persuaded the Castle Comfort homecare products specialists to get serious about expansion. Robin's efforts and help, despite poor health, ensured that the Stoke based firm would go from stength to strength. Robin has now sadly left us, but in accordance with his beliefs - is still here - with other absent friends. His succesor, Richard Roemer of Acorn was challenged to be a satisfactory 'half as good at his job as Robin' but has in fact exceeded well beyond that. Richard, also of Leicester, is a staunch follower of Leicester City and is often seen at the "Walkers Stadium" when not working.

Loughborough is known for it's university that is well ranked in the UK and was actually voted University of the Year 2008/9 by the Sunday Times. David Neilson, Coronation Street actor is from here. Just like our own Stairlift Stephen he is a keen charity runner who I once saw take part in a race at Stoke-on-Trent's Trentham Gardens, where the HQ of Castle Comfort Stairlifts makes its home. It is also the site of the world's largest bell foundry having been responsible for making both the bells for St.Pauls Cathedral and also York Minster. Ding dong!

Hinckley is located in the south west of Leicestershire and like Leicester is famous for it's engineering and hosiery manufacturing. It has the headquarters of Triumph, the classic motorbike firm ridden by many celebrities including Tom Cruise and George Clooney. Concerning hosiery, in its heyday it was estimated there were upto 6000 people making stockings in the town!

 Melton Mowbray if not famous throughout the world is certainly known in England for it's pork pies. Its pies are now protected by an EEC ruling like that applied to Champagne in France. If it is not produced in the area you cannot put Melton Mowbray on it or call it by that name. It is also known for the Stilton cheese produced here and the town calls itself the "Rural Capital of Food." Market Harborough is known for being the birthplace of Thomas Cook the founder of the package tour company. In fact the world's first package tour which he organised was to the sunny climate of Loughborough previously mentioned above!

 If you need assistance to travel about and want some help getting up and down the stairs safely and want a trustworthy company to help you then please contact Keith or Ann free on 0800 007 6959.

The three biggest employers in the city are Devon County Council, the University of Exeter and six years ago The Met Office relocated here.

Due to ever increasing demand Castle Comfort Stairlifts have now got a Nottingham office serving the East Midlands region, which includes those looking for stairlifts in Derbyshire Leicester or Peterborough too. As part of our series of regional and city blogs this one will give you fascinating facts about the area as well as linking you to information on buying stairlifts in Nottingham a city famous for many things but I hope to uncover some new facts that will surprise you.

An Englishman's home is his castle and Nottingham has it's own castle built on a hill with far reaching views over the town. Intriguingly it's built on Castle Rock, which has a network of stairs and cave passageways carved out underground, beneath the castle. In the time of Edward III it was invaded by troops who had found a stairway that led from Englands oldest pub located down below in the town and went through the rock to the castle. It must have been handy for the castle owner to pop downstairs for a tipple!

This area is well known for the bands of robbers, outlaws and highwaymen around these parts, and no I'm not talking about other stairlift firms!! Of course I'm talking about Robin Hood and his Merry Men those Nottingham legends that have had many books and films made about their story. But did you know that Nottingham has also been featured in some other films? The Golden Globe, Academy Award and Bafta nominated actress Samantha Morton hails from Nottingham and has filmed here. Though it might be Albert Finney and Hylda Baker, who starred in TV sitcom Nearest and Dearest with Jimmy Jewel, whose names are more familiar to you starring together in BAFTA winning Saturday Night Sunday Morning which was filmed in Nottingham.

Another legend well known in the area who took two East Midlands clubs to spectacular new heights in football was Brian Clough. Infamous for being passionate and opinionated about the game he nevertheless took first of all Derby County and then Nottingham Forest onto great achievements. At Derby he got them promoted to Division 1, won the league cup and helped them set an undefeated 22 match record. At Nottingham, with his help, they went from 8th in Division 2 to winning the Division 1 League cup and back to back European cup championships including a record breaking undefeated run of 42 games.
Talking football, Stoke City have in their time played Notts County, Nottingham Forest and Derby County. Stoke is where Castle Comfort Stairlifts have their head office. If you want to see how you can get round a curved set of stairs with less cost then see their chair lift cartoon with a Stoke City rider!

Other sports that Nottingham is known for is of course it's cricket. Trent Bridge being one of the finest international cricket venues, (and third oldest ground in the world.) It's here you can watch England play international cricket with the best in the world. Other sports that Nottingham are known for with national centres of excellence are its National Ice Centre and in Holme Pierrepont the National Watersports Centre where every year an Ironman Triathlon is held. Competitors swim a couple of miles, cycle over a hundred then run a gruelling marathon - all in a day. If tackling the stairs is getting as demanding for you and you'd like to make life easier for yourself why not try a riser recliner chair from Castle Comfort in Nottingham.

Kind Edgar, that's him up above to the left, established himself at Penkridge, only a mile and a half from one of the regional offices of Castle Comfort Stairlifts at Dunston in Staffordshire. In those days wherever the king was living was held to be the seat of government and therefore the capital of the country. Edgar the Peaceful as he was known was declared to have held his seat of power in the area for reputedly upto 3 years.

According to the Birmingham Post when they were visiting Penkridge many locals were proud of their small towns claim to fame even if it was way back in the 10th Century!

Overall Excellent
A service that cannot be beaten. With an elderly mother in hospital requiring a stairlift before she could be discharged I had spent many hours ringing around stairlift companies only to be frustrated at the complexities of obtaining a direct quote and fitting date without the seemingly obligatory visit by the 'sales person'. Then I found Keith at Castle Comfort Stairlifts, what a relief. It felt like I was talking to someone from my family, he understood our predicament and was able to offer sound honest advice and provided a very competitive price for the installation of the chair over the phone. (Fantastic). Keith pulled out the stops and arranged for the measure up and fitting of the chair within a week to coincide with my mum's discharge. If you are looking for a company that really cares and one you can trust to provide you with the best no nonsense quote then I can highly recommend Keith and his family at Castle Comfort. Thank you. Mark. Middlesex.
