We were looking at the home of a short-lived queen for last week's Sunday Snap. I asked who was the nine day queen who had lived at Bradgate Park and the answer is
Lady Jane Grey
After last week's sad tale I have a comedy connection for this week's Sunday Snap. In the back streets of the Doncaster suburb of Balby is this hairdressing salon. Since 1976 it has also been known as the location of the grocer's shop belonging to the miserly Arkwright in a BBC sitcom. Whilst Arkwright's version of shopkeeping seemed stuck in an era long gone with its assistant service and antiquated cash till the hairdresser's in real life doesn't seem to have moved on since either.
To enable filming to take place the hairdresser's closed during the summer and the production team moved in to transform the outside of the shop with Arkwright's latest offers and money making schemes. Across the road lies the house of Nurse Gladys Emmanuel who Arkwright has been informally engaged to for many years. The closest it seems Arkwright ever got to getting inside Nurse Gladys' house was by going up a ladder and looking in her bedroom window. After four series the programme came to an end in 1985. The series was brought back with a sequel in 2014 with Arkwright's much put upon nephew, Granville, now running the shop. This week's question is
What is the name of TV series that featured Arkwright's shop?
We were joined last week by Susan and a Valentine's orchid and date night. Kara has been in Scotland to see the One O'clock Gun go off at Edinburgh Castle and some cold looking water running though Glen Doll. There's been a stack of new books arriving at Anne's house. Lula has been out finding snowdrops. Finally, Lisa has been taking a walk under the blue skies of Givat Barfilia.
