Hi TonyS, in response to your quote no 30. You are correct about the bowling alley position. It took me a while to figure it out because I was sure you got to it from the Cov market car park. There was a bridge walkway, you can still see part of it sticking out from the back end of Iceland and the barrier missing from the corner of the car park. Bit of a delay but still trying to catch up, hope everyone had a nice Christmas. Cheers

There was a door at ground level on Rover Road - I think it's still there although boarded up - and you could also enter directly from the carpark on the roof of the market (that link has long gone) Thumbs up

I can remember it being Anthony Jackson's supermarket, an el cheapo place, before Kwik Save arrived. Many years before, actually. I believe Victor Value bought them out or took over.

Victor Value has been mentioned previously elsewhere in the forum. Enter ‘Victor Value’ into the search box (top left) to bring up these posts. Thumbs up
