    I always remember going down Rocky Lane and seeing the giant St Bruno billboard with the pipe glowing red.

    It is all be finished now. I remember a while back going up the tower to
    service the radio gear for security, the smell of the tobacco was everywere
    and in the tower were 1000,s of old WWII gas masks still in the cardboard
    boxes with the string to hang around your neck. When it eventualy closes
    it will be a great place for UE
