I recall as a child (1960's) a fish and chip shop near the gas works, ? Broadmead Road. Lovely fish and chips wrapped in newspaper which we'd eat by the toll road. Can anyone confirm the fish and chip shop location please?

George Loulli had a fish & chip shop at 5 Broadmead Road in the 60ís. Not sure about the Toll Road though. The only toll road in operation that I remember from my childhood was Lower Sandgate Road, and I am not sure, but I think they had done away with the tolls by the 60ís. There used to be a toll house on Canterbury Road, up on the hill, but that was gone years before that.
