The engineering department at Kingston poly was in the old Hawker aircraft factory. They just put some floors where they could amidst all the existing girders. It made corridors multi-level to go from one end to the other. I assume it's been flattened now. I don't get to that part of Kingston when I go to the Peel.

I'm told you lived on London Grill for the whole course, Trace.

The elitism and privilege of University were beyond my reach, I'm afraid.

There was absolutely no element of elitism where I went to do my course.  Cheesy  I suppose I could count it as a privelage, but I get to pay it all back later on.  Wink  And I didn't go to uni, either.

Maybe.

But it would be better had you counted it a privilege

If I remember correctly, it was more than likely some sort of corned beef hash. Sausage & chips every day in the poly canteen (it was really cheap).

It's a swanky housing development.

That surprises me not at all.
More importantly, is the Grey Horse still going.

Apparently the Grey Horse is still in operation. It must have changed, health & safety would have closed it down if was run in the same way today.
I've just seen on the map a pub called the Artful Dodger just down the road from the Grey Horse - does anybody know what it used to be called?

I only remember it as the Artful Dodger - and the fact that they made a point of employing big-boobed barmaids.

No, the pub that used to be opposite Canbury Park Road has gone, flattened by another road by the looks of things.
Grey Horse doesn't look much different though, just cleaner windows.

I've remembered the name of the missing pub - The Royal Charter.
Very easy to pop in for a drink at lunchtime after going to The Record Shop to purchase cheap albums.

I do. And I've come to the conclusion that this is the source of my confusion about Freefall supporting Grey Lady Down.

The Grey Horse stage barely had enough room for the band members to stand on.

You've come a long way since those sort of venues...
