A different angle, and a view we'd not be able to get today.
My flickr pictures are herehttp://www.flickr.com/photos/phill_dvsn/Because lunacy was the influence for an album. It goes without saying that an album about lunacy will breed a lunatics obsessions with an album - The Dark side of the moon!

My 70 year old mince pies are not as good as they once were! I can remember standing looking down this hole myself in those days! I think there were some steps nr the corner of Boar Ln which led down to the Old Wine Lodge.A few of the lads I was with went in and there was a guy on a big Wurlitzer organ on a plinth. It was about the time of the tune Telstar ,very popular at the time.I asked him if he could play it. He replied," This thing will play it on it's own!"
