Hi Kaga, I know what you mean about that - it seemed strange to me, too, on first glance, with it appearing as though Pepper Lane was on the left of Atkin's & Turton. But I've seen a few of those directory listings before, and that's not what was meant by "Pepper Lane to left".... Imagine you're reading the directory as you walk along High Street eastwards towards the Council House. First on the left is number 1, then 2 (Atkin's & Turton), then Pepper Lane, then number 3 (Harrison's Opticians).... etc. Then it all makes sense.

Rob, hi! Not for me. You see, there was an iron post in the middle of the entrance to Pepper Lane - for me it held a fascination to leapfrog it, more it was a challenge, but it was always from Pepper Lane. As the years went by it looked easier, but at the last second I would chicken out, telling myself that someone in the High Street got in my way. I never did master it, but it actually survived the bombs, although knocked wonkey, but the council removed it. Happy childhood days in Coventry.
