  • Description

    LesĀ talks passionately about his collection of old artefacts and architectural items. He goes on to rail against current attitudes and feels he is preserving some of our heritage against a tide of bureaucracy. Nottingham (to the east) and Manchester (to the northwest) are major cities within reach of Cheadle. The Alhambra is, presumably, the name of a former local cinema.
