Who remembers the Welcome Inn? Memories requested

 I went looking for a photograph of the Welcome Inn and instead only found adverts for the new flats that occupy the site.

The idea was to do a then and now and invite comments about the pub in its heyday.

I can remember watching the crowds walk down past our house on Well Hall Road on a Sunday after I guess a night in the pub.

Later still it was where I watched one of the first colour transmissions on BBC 2, which was a tennis match.

Now tennis bores the pants off me but there was a real novelty value in watching it in colour.

I think we only went the once and then a few more times after that.

And then it was gone.
