I get up to Cumbria fairly regular, my brother has a caravan just of the A66, halfway between Penrith
and Keswick. I was up there three or four weeks ago.

I was often at the Golden slipper on a Saturday night in the mid 1960s it was just a short walk from my digs.

She's already said in her reply that's she's on the coast at Whitehaven.
Hutton Moor End is a long way from Whitehaven, Hutton Moor End is
nearer to where my brother has his caravan near Hutton Roof.

It was on the opposite side of the road to the Regent but a little bit further down the road towards the Chi.

It was called Hedworth Hall, it was only the Golden Slipper on a Saturday night as far as I can remember.
