A Memory of Bideford

Taking the bus from Westward Ho! and walking up the high street to Woolworths to buy a record of Roy Orbison singing 'Only the lonely'. That was when you could buy anything you wanted on a 'proper high street' where all the best shops were. That was the last time I went up the high street before my family moved to Sussex.
