Biography: 1976 may have been my first visit to the Isle of Wight - with the exciting ferry crossing that involved. My dad had several Reliant Scimitars, which he later upgraded to a V8 Rover SD1 3.5ltr, to tow the family caravan.
Wider world: 1976 was the year of Punk, Rocky, Cardigans and The Multicoloured Swap Shop. The Muppets were everywhere and kites became a big deal at the toy shop. There were toy shops back then. Oh yes. Taxi Driver was in cinemas and Abba became the biggest band in the world. The Body Shop launched, and the Wurzles topped the charts with a song about a Combine Harvester. Number 1 on my birthday: If You Leave Me Now by Chicago.
Where next: Continue to the disused level crossing before looking right to catch a view of Claydon House, another regular childhood location. If your way is blocked, step over the fallen fence on the right and turn left onto the road. Cross it to face on-coming traffic and very soon you have a narrow pavement to walk on. On your right is a Victorian postbox and the post my brother almost killed himself by cycling into when he approached to crossing too quickly to stop himself when the barriers were down. He was rescued by our art teacher, Miss B. On to LB06!
