Half an hour south of Edinburgh. Fifteen minutes from lovely beaches at Gullane and North Berwick.
Our house was on the tree line. I could step out the door and roam for hours without seeing a car. Very rare in the UK. I used to dangle a worm into the loch you see there.
What does that mean?
I miss Fat Cat records in Covent Garden and the feeling of discovering amazing new records there every time I went in.... a time as well as a place.
castle rock is a brewery- their pub/brewery is near the station- you could use it as a gateway to the meadows (somewhere i DON'T miss)
i haven't been out in nottm for about 6 years, but bunkers hill in hockley is a city centre freehouse with a good range of beers. or go up mansfield road to lincolnshire poacher (used to do good food too).
Yeah we could do a whole thread about closed cinemas....
I grew up in Bedford which is a crap town, one good thing was it had the biggest cinema screen in the UK where I saw Star Wars, Tron etc etc as a kid. It was also used as a venue and the Beatles & Hendrix and others played there.
Then they knocked it down and built one of those multiplex places on the edge of town so you needed a car to get there, all the screens were tiny. The demolition site of the old cinema stood empty for about 15-20 years and now it's a Lidl.
no they are quite weird: the salt beef one, howmuch slat beef do you need?! They're crazy! I saw si pegg in that shop, meand my friend called to him softly.
