    Sainsburys is no longer there, it moved onto the old Birmingham Battery site a couple of years ago. There are plans for more Student accommodation on the site.

    The Green Man pub, not one that I liked, much preferred the one opposite The Plough. I was a member of the Shooting Club in the late 60s.

    Battery low, being locked out.

    Morning jukebox Most of the ones I have looked at offer 12months guarantee and vary in price from around £14:00 up to £40:00, so I will try for one in the middle bracket. Thank you once again for your help and thanks also to pjmburns, much appreciated.
