An old 'Intrepid' reel ad from 1964.

Prices ranged from 19s 9d (98p) to £5 9s 3d (£5.45). Their mid-range reel, the 'Regent' cost £2 9s 7d (£2.48). The pre-decimal prices seemed a lot of money at the time! :laughs:

Windmill Pub at 10 mile bank, the bridge survives but not the pub

The shed at Barrie's I helped move it after the marriage break up but it had doubled in size and content.

I suppose canvas is still available?

I stopped fishing at 10 mile bank, well at least in the village. I couldn't find anywhere to put my bag down for all the dog s***e.

Shame as it was a good spot years ago.

Always knew the bridge as the Windmill bridge named after the pub, Hilgay is miles away.

Moving the shed the last time was a bit of a trauma, with threats of prosecution etc. it wasn't a happy breakup.
A bit of a lad was our Barrie.

Place names change quite a bit over time.

Interesting to look around old maps. Drains gone, new ones dug. :smile:
