It was a land of dismal grey plastic-concrete crescents where the sun never shone, no one paid their rent, and everyone was on the “soshe”.

The council had obliterated the back-to-back terraced houses and the workshops (such as the one where Rolls Royce made their earliest engines) to build what soon became a dystopian wasteland. But just when it was beginning to work, with a micro-society of quirky bands and oddball characters, the council knocked it down again.

* Meet outside the 8th Day Restaurant, 111 Oxford Road, All Saints, 11am, Fri 11 August 2017.
