Mr Arwel Barrett on clandestine manoueuvres ...

Posted by Picasa
Here is Arwel Barrett snapped by Rebecca Chambers peeking round the side of a small hut in 1988. Crickley Hill Man was strolling on Hampstead Heath yesterday in the company of Mr Boden. We came upon the magnificent prospect of the Great Wen that can be enjoyed from the top of Parliament Hill where the kites fly. We talked our way from left to right along the horizon picking out the landmarks. "Canary Wharf, the Gherkin, St Paul's Cathedral, the London Eye, ah, the Post Office Tower ..." said Mr Boden, "Did you know that Arwel used to tell a story about an occasion in the early 1970s in which he alleged that he had spent an evening in the revolving restaurant on the top of the Post Office Tower in the company of Pan's People?" I have googled Arwel Barrett and Pan's People and this social event of the decade is not memorialised.

For the benefit of his Lordship, readers under the age of 45 or not resident in the United Kingdom during the 1970s, Pan's People were a troupe of popular danseuses who prone to appear on a programme on the televisual device called 'Top of the Pops". Perhaps Arwel has some photographs?
