Comments about this page

Two of the pubs were the Dorset Arms, on the left hand side going North, nearly opposite the junction with Kensington Gardens and the Jolly Butchers, near the top of North Road just down from the sorting office. Are they still there? I used to drink frequently in the Dorset Arms 1967-68. The landlord, called Lou I think, was always drunk! My father worked in a hairdresser's near the top of North Road just down from where the NCP car park now is. It was a very small shop with just two chairs and a small bench for waiting customers. My dad was known as 'Jock' by all his customers. Does anyone remember him? He worked there for about 30 years till he suddenly got the sack in the 1980s. [Dave, your posting has been edited, I do hope you understand. Many thanks for your memories.
