128 EVERGREEN Autumn

128 EVERGREEN Autumn Overseen by owner Charles Bowman (it was previously run by his father Richard, the former Lancashire cricketer and brewer), the décor of the Inn at Whitewell, with accompanying flagstone floors, old hunting prints, paintings and log fires is as tasteful and comfortable as can be. Television viewers who watched the first episode of the situation comedy The Trip in 2010 were able to glimpse parts of this interior, and perhaps, beyond the banter of the programme’s stars Rob Brydon and Steve Coogan, gain a sense of the Inn’s ambience. However, as one guest commented: “It’s hard to do this place justice in pictures. Pictures don’t capture the welcoming scent of the fire as you step through the front door, the warm, relaxed atmosphere which immediately puts you at ease, or the changing light on the magical views as you sit quietly enjoying a drink and gazing out of the window.” Inn at Whitewell, Clitheroe, Forest of Bowland, Lancashire BB7 3AT Tel: 01200 448222 JACK JAKEMAN

2017 EVERGREEN 129 THE PAST IN COLOUR It is summer 1964 with a nonuniform terrace looking down to the sea, each house a different colour. A Ford Anglia van faces a Hillman Minx saloon which is about to be passed by a “Baby” Austin A35. Two ladies are busy chatting while a girl manoeuvres her toy pram. The man is standing underneath a metal sign advertising Kensitas cigarettes. Note the ubiquitous H-shaped television aerials of the period and a narrow trench which has been backfilled along the pavement, with a side branch leading to each home. There has never been any gas here so it must be water or electricity, each of which is possible because mains water was installed around this time and electricity was switched from overhead to underground cables. Any ideas where it is? If you have ever visited the Inner Hebrides then you might recognise the main street of Bowmore on the southernmost island of Islay, specifically the A486 looking across Loch Indaal towards a promontory known as the Rinns of Islay. The buildings today are all painted white, however and, like the rest of the UK, all the H-shaped television aerials have disappeared. The picture was taken on the new Kodachrome II film by the late Roger Redfern, who travelled the country recording the past for many years. Does anyone know for certain whether it was gas or electricity being connected and also if the darker coloured tarmac nearest the pavement was associated with it? CHRISTOPHER NICHOLSON
