I put Castleton in, my iPad corrected it I thought I'd put it right, my fault :oops:
I worked down the Speedwell Cavern part time in the early 60s whilst at school as a guide and also as a pusher using my feet on the roof of the tunnel to propell the boat whilst lying on a bed
Happy days :)

What was the big hotel in Hope where there used to be a good classic car turn out in the summer months, the Marquis of Granby? Been derelict a long while now. On the subject of Castleton, I wonder if they sell Speedwell underpants in the Speedwell Cavern gift shop? :lol: :lol:

The hotel in Hope is the Old Hall it was the head quarters of the North Midland Motor Club
Every year they held a motor show whlch was very popular The landlord Jack Jones was an MG enthusiast and one night introduced me to two young ladies having trouble with their MGB V8 I thought one was the girl for me
That was 43 years ago and we've been married for the last 41
I only went out for a pint :lol:
