Video - Driving around Derby, Allenton to Derby City Centre August 2009

Here is a video I have recently uploaded to my YouTube channel.
I drove this route on Sunday 9th August 2009 starting at 2pm.
It starts in Allenton, Derby and goes under Spider Bridge along Osmaston Road all the way to the Town Centre and back out again.
I just found this footage in my collection and realised that I had forgot to upload it two years ago!
I thought I would get it online as it features some areas I've not yet covered in my Derby streets by car collection.

Watching this now it makes you realise just how much has changed in Derby in just a short amount of time.
For instance at 04:18 Lara Croft Way was only half open at this time.
At 05:30 you can see Derby Bus Station being built.
At 05:39 all the Morledge area looks old and dated in this footage.
At 06:51 Feels wrong going to the right of the pub here instead of going along the new "Quaker Way" but of course that new bit of road was not built back then.

This video is slightly faster than realtime, I have edited out the longer periods of waiting at traffic lights.
