The Frenchman Motel*, Goodwick, that hosted bands such as Status Quo, The Tremeloes, The Trogs, Sassafras and Elvis Costello in the 1970s has long gone. Did these feet bop along with the fans that were drawn to the events in their hundreds, kept upright by the crush in a venue presumably officially limited to many fewer?
Does anyone recognise these feet? They rest by the piles of masonry and loose bricks that were once ‘The Frenchman’. The rubble was initially heaped high enough to provide an exciting playground for neighbouring children but it’s now reduced to hummocks and dips that will soon disappear under a spongey layer of grass and moss.
*The Motel was above Wern Road and the railway. Click here for a postcard reminder.
Gives the phrase “and did those feet in ancient times” a little extra milage here! Fascinating. Were you tempted to pick the feet up for your garden?
Actually we have a head in our garden, that I don’t like but can’t somehow throw out. Having feet as well would be too much!
Brilliant sleuthing and a serendipitous find.
