    About 1977 maybe? I was a bromley punk at the time so I went along to boo hiss at prince Charles who opened it officially.

    Prior to this we'd had running battles with the police almost every saturday along bromley highstreet and we'd often nip through where the gardens were built and escape to Shortlands...

    We'd all meet at Napoleon record shop in station square and it would always kick off from there. Good memories :)

    Haha! Yes, I knew 'Napoleons' didn't sound right :D Over forty years ago now but good times :) there used to be a shoe shop half way down the high street on the left, it had a flat above it that was opened as a youth drop in called the Bromley Y Project. That was about the same time. Plus the Croydon greyhound on a Sunday night. And my local was the star and garter....
