So what were we doing 40 years ago? Living in rooms above Sue's Dad's tool hire shop at the top of Naish's street opposite the Globe. The rooms were not supposed to be habitable the street was set for a major refurbishment but Sue and I needed a place after I left home on my 18th birthday.The places were pretty run down. Pour buckets of water down the toilet after use - no bathroom etc. We had two cats which we got from Nigel's farm.

|The Globe Inn was right next door which was a problem as it was the hang out of the Frome punks and they used to try and drop in.|

Eventually we had to move out and rented a kosher flat in Frome. This was when Animals & Men started. But that's another story.
