Not as funny as those two ghouls who were on X-Factor on Saturday night. The continued existence of them both on our TV screens is, indeed, in the trick category. And yes, as soon as John & Edward starting to sing badly and out of sync [again] I switched over. In case anyone is interested in this '...

Hi Boss, I`m probably thinking of `Wesley Hall` basically on the junction of Sydenham Road and Kent House Road ish,
. It seems to be in the right place, was it the same in the late sixties as it is now? I seem to remember it being boarded up at some stage.

Cheers guys, Where would the two halfs have been?
I seem to remember a building with steps and i`m sure that it was boarded up before demolition, this would have been mid to late sixties.
