Leicester is one of the oldest cities in England, with a history going back at least two millennia. The native Iron Age settlement encountered by the Romans at the site seems to have developed in the 2nd or 1st centuries BC. Little is known about this settlement or the condition of the River Soar at this time, although roundhouses from this era have been excavated and seem to have clustered along roughly 8 hectares (20 acres) of the east bank of the Soar above its confluence with the Trent. This area of the Soar was split into two channels: a main stream to the east and a narrower channel on the west, with a presumably marshy island between. The settlement seems to have controlled a ford across the larger channel. The later Roman name was a latinate form of the Brittonic word for "ramparts" (cf. Gaelic rath and the nearby villages of Ratby and Ratcliffe), suggesting the site was an oppidum. The plural form of the name suggests it was initially composed of several villages. The Celtic tribe holding the area was later recorded as the "Coritanians" but an inscription recovered in 1983 showed this to have been a corruption of the original "Corieltauvians". The Corieltauvians are believed to have ruled over roughly the area of the East Midlands.

I have been investigating how to remove artex, I have been advised
that the best method is to use a wallpaper steam stripper, this
'bubbles' the stuff off and keeps it wet so that no dust is
generated. This can then be bagged for safe disposal by the council.
Does anyone know when they stopped using asbestos in Artex? I am
buying a house which has artex on the walls and am wondering whether
this might contain asbestos.
Late 80's I think but it would be far easier for you to get some samples
tested first - it's alot of work to go to if it doesn't contain asbestos.
The problem is, that although the use of asbestos in artex may have been
banned on a certain date, lots of contractors would have had lots of stock
to use up so just because the house was built or refurbished a year or so
after it was banned - doesn't mean that the stuff won't have asbestos in it.
Testing is the only way. As for method - can't help. Try a specialist
3-5% Chrysotile(white asbestos) was added to Artex upto 1984 although
non-asbestos forms were available from the mid-seventies. The 1992
prohibition regs can be accepted as a fairly safe cut-off period beyond
which artex should be asbestos free.
However, as Sarah Jowett points out contractors may still have been using up
old stocks beyond 1984. Laboratory analysis is the only way to determine
for certain if the artex contains asbestos. I would urge caution with
sampling the material as the asbestos content is low and can be concentrated
in patches. Therefore ensure that you sample sufficient material from
several places. I would advise using a UKAS accredited laboratory for the
analysis. Many offer a sampling service at relative low cost.
Most licensed asbestos removal companies use a wet method for removal to
reduce the potential for generating airborne asbestos fibres. In any case
use of power tools should be avoided.
I'm in Glasgow and a few months ago there was a steam pipe that ruptured
and caused a large plume (about 10 stories high). I was outside with
my small child at the time the closest point I was at was about 500
ft. from the plume. I also know that I was upwind from the plume as a
video from a local tv station clearly showed the plume blowing in the
I tried to get info. on this and consulted the local environmental
dept. I was unable to get the levels in terms of f/cc, but was told
that the levels were "low" and that there was something like 1 fiber
detected in half the air samples done. Other tests done by the steam
unit of the electric company found no asbestos in their air & debris
sample that the pipe (which was relatively new) was actually made of
fiberglass. As such, I don't know if the low levels that were found
would have been detected anyway. Both told me that it was a "wet
explosion" as it was caused by a fire hydrant breaking and leaking
cold water onto the steam.
Does anyone know if, in an accidental release of asbestos in the
outoor air, such as this one, what is the typical distance away from
the plume that would be considered "safe." Would expsoure to any
fibers be likely, given the details (being 500 ft away upwind, given
the "wet" explosion, etc.) Does the fiber concentration dissipate
significantly in the outdoor air, and is there a signifcant
difference between upwind and downwind direction in terms of possible
I bought a house about a year ago and started to remodel by laying
ceramic tile. In order to do this, I had to take up some existing
flooring. I read about the possibility of asbestos being in the
vinyl sheet flooring, but was assured by flooring outlets that since
it was laid in the late 80's, the chances were very slim that it
contained any asbestos. Based on this, I soaked the floor with water
and began to take it up. After reading on the Internet about
organizations that would test samples for asbestos, I sent a sample
to be tested. I was surprised to find out that the backing was about
30% Chrysolite Asbestos. There are no specific statistics on the
Internet (that I could find) on how much exposure was considered too
much. I guess my question would be "Is taking up around 100 square
feet of WET vinyl flooring enough exposure to warrant concern"? Most
of the information that I was able find on the Internet dealt with
occupations where people had been exposed to asbestos for years.
Should I be worried?

Refurbishment and demolition surveys will be necessary when the building (or part of it) is to be upgraded, refurbished or demolished and should be carried out before any refurbishment or demolition work commences.
A refurbishment and demolition survey may also be necessary when intrusive maintenance or repair work is required or plant is to be removed or dismantled.
Refurbishment and demolition surveys are intended to locate all the asbestos in the building (or the relevant part), as far as is reasonably practicable.
Refurbishment and demolition surveys are fully intrusive and involve destructive inspection, as necessary. Therefore, they should only be carried out in specific locations where refurbishment or demolition is planned.
A refurbishment and demolition survey to targeted areas of a building can be carried out in conjunction with a management survey.
The refurbishment and demolition survey reports will include full results of all materials sampled or presumed to contain asbestos, a full list and description of all areas inspected, annotated plans and conclusions.
