Interesting pic, Thomas.

I have been looking for a place that sells wooden plaques for the home. There used to be a place in the Wiend.

Well done, our Dennis! (Dennis is an old friend of mine, Tom). In fact, I've just reckoned up he's a friend of over forty years!....Where do the years go? "Once Upon a Time there was a Tavern", eh, Dennis? With Bob and Tizzie in it. Happy Days! x.

I don’t remember this but during my time at Westwood Power Stn the “old electricity building” was referred to as Bradford Place by the older hands.
