      Hi - Not trolling you honest - just took a look at your profile because we're of a similar age. I used to live in Harpenden in the 80s. Worked at Taylor Walker Solicitors & drank regularly at the Cross Keys. Moved away in 87 to Berkshire & then a bit of a journey around UK & France over the next 30-odd yrs. Currently living in Somerset (but probably not for much longer - I have very itchy feet!). Best wishes.

        Oh, I only moved to Harpenden in October 87. At that time I worked in Milton Keynes, not a pub goer - so I doubt that our paths crossed.
