The Old Redgrave Petrol Station, and some Hand Bells, Suffolk and Long Stratton - 8th October 1990

On a cycle ride from Stuston to who-knows-where, but at least ending up at Redgrave in Suffolk, Nosher spots the remains of the old Redgrave Petrol Station and its pumps, kicking off a life-long interest in derelict petrol stations. Then, it's round to Geoff and Brenda's for some reason, and then a hand-bell session down at "Corky" David and Linda's in Long Stratton. Their lounge carpet ended up in Nosher's Stuston gaff, as something of an improvement to the shocking ex-shoe-shop covering that had been there previously.
