Brings back a lot of memories from my childhood used to scale the ivy that was covering the wall spent many a time smoking number 10's in there lol

Remember those No 10 cigarettes Pepsi, a lot cheaper than the No 6 too and even they were classed as being sweep ups, a mate and I would copper up to buy 20 No 10 and a box of matches for around three bob, which would now be about 15p, wouldn't be able to copper up enough to buy them these days though.

I love the way you've framed the view Ron.
These are lovely peaceful spaces to come in the weektime when there's not many other folk here.
