NO! Not the pub!, the little road in Walton, where Sainsburys is now. There was a little old pub called The Stanley, with a coal fire and a 'snug'. and next to that was the old picture house, I think it was the Atlas, Long since closed down when I was a kid, we used to cut between the Plough and the Atlas, down Throstles nest and then turn into Beaconsfield Road, it was like steppin back in time, it was a little cobbled street full of two up two downs and old gaslamps as I remember, I used to get the wierdest feelin as I walked into that road, on my way to Wally all park, it was like I had gone into another era!! I was so sad when they pulled it all down, some things should be kept for posterity!
