    ...but, if I remember correctly, it would have said "1 in 4 hill" in the 60's not a percentage....

    That's steep for any car, even now...

    Smurfs Quite right, its the Black-E, Just inside the entrance. The photo does no justice, its 7 meteres tall and is very impressive! All part of the Biennal installations.

    Take a look inside the Black-E too, theres some great works inside.

    Hi Norm,it was an old church, formerly known as the"Blackie"! Maybe political correctness affected it's name?
