The USSR (was in Moscow during the failed coup in 1991).

Of all the football grounds that no longer exist, Maine Road is at the top of the list because of being there for Palace's first league visit in 1965.

Of all the pubs that no longer exist, the Addington Hotel and others too many to mention.

The Soviet nuclear submarine base in Balaclava, Crimea.

That's good. I liked Folkestone.
When we lived in Hythe I could see the Romney Hythe Dymchurch trains running past the back of our garden. Like having my own train set.

I went on that a few years back. For a couple of quid I upgraded to first class where we had a bar/bartender for our exclusive use

the old wemberlee. What an absolute 5hlthole that was.

Highfield Road, in the drug dealers area of Coventry.

Ragamuffins nightclub (Camberley). Just a darkened den of music, expensive drinks, and as many females as you could grope in the dark before they closed at 1am
Informally re-named Slaggamuffins to locals
