NormK. Nice photo, but what a lonely desolate place it looks. When I knew it, it was one of the warmest, friendliest place you could know, sure it needed a lick of paint, but it was open to the road, often a couple of bikes along the wall, inside a log fire burning, a game of threes and fives going on, a lot of good old 'Beduth' slang, some singing at times. When they started to build the school almost opposite there were plenty of well-paid labouring jobs going, a few farmers took advantage of the cash in the slack season. One farmer from Barnacle told me of two horses at Wolvey Point-to-Point, both won, pockets full of money for me. Should you think I was a big drinker, that wasn't the case. My brother-in-law (local lad) had a hole in his back, a lung missing along with other parts from the Battle of Monte Casino. He needed, and deserved, a companion at times.

Two of the labourers talking in the Navigation, "You wos late this morning, Harry". "No I weren't, I was here before you". "No you weren't, you were nowhere about when I first laid eyes on you".
