The rather strange exterior colour plan of the Burgoyne came about when Wheeny decided to have the pub painted blue & white. He employed a couple of the locals who were in between jobs in exchange for beer.

Typically he underestimated the amount of white paint required and fell well short.

Fortunately the council were painting double yellow lines on Langsett Rd at the time and the council lads used to call in for a pint at lunchtime & after work. A conversation was had & a deal done to supplement the shortfall of white paint with council yellow line issue.

Wheeny then claimed he'd had it painted in his favourite Wednesday away colours!

True story

Burgoyne (Inn, Arms?) just before Kelvin Flats.

Went there for a few jars & ended up getting my first ropey tattoo a few doors down, near Langsett Cycles, Hells Angel's place, full of dangerous looking people.

Barmaid looked EXACTLY like Kate Bush.

Went back a couple of times to try & chat Kate Bush up.

No chance.

Mmmmmmmmmm Kate's Bush.

The Coronation cafe on the same side on Lansett Rd (possibly nearer town) was the Hells Angels meetup place in the early 70s.

They also used to hang around in the Mustard Seed cafe at the back of the Peace Gardens.

It was the tattooist that was Hell’s Anglesy, not the boozer.

I can’t really recall the clientele of the Burgoyne.

I was to transfixed with Kate Bush/Wheeny pouring my Stoneses.

Can anyone remember the Tangerine Cafe on Leppings Lane? It was open 24 hours, and where we’d meet up to plan tactics for the arrival of opposition fans

It was next to the tyre place, and was open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Always thought it was a bit of an odd place to have an all night cafe
