Is it only for 2 way bikes now Roy
Make every day a day to remember
Because this ain't no rehearsal
And you ain't coming back

Of course the other option although just as strenuous was from the Merritts Brook up Merritts Hill to the Highlander, but we usually started there and walked downhill to the Merritts Brook pub.

We get plenty of good exercise down here when out walking as there are steep hills everywhere, which ever way you go it means climbing a hill.

This photo is tagged Webster Street - Newtown Row, but surely Webster Street was off The High Street.
Quite right, Phil, Webster St was off High St, Aston. You'd be surprised, or perhaps not, at the number of folk who insist this was called Newtown Row even when I have posted old maps showing clearly that Newtown Row, at that time, started at Asylum Rd and went towards town. We lived in a pub, The Stork, on the other corner of Asylum Rd and our address was High Street. Lovely pic by the way!

Would you say that was taken in the 1930`s? or even late 1920`s?

I'd guess later than that Mike, 1950? I wonder if Phil has the answer.

I was working on the old AEC (I think) bus.

Quite a number of AEC Regents` supplied to the fleet in 1930.
One, OC935 (?) re-bodied in `43 and survived until 1950.
So pic could  be some time from 1930`s to 1950.
I think the road signs look pre-1950 ?
