    The clock is much more recent than that, despite our "memories" of it being there for ever.

    I think it's this century, I did ask in the shop one day, but I can't remember the specific answer. It may have been a 'millennium thing'.


    Edit - I have found this message that I sent in November 2018, to someone who claimed that it had definitely been there for as long as she could remember, which could well be true, I suppose...

    "According to the lad in Peter Roger's shop, the Mill Street clock came around four years ago - no more than five."

    And this is the reason why it's there.

    Time stood still in the 70s so no need for clocks :)

    I'm moving back to the 70's in terms of haircuts. Haven't had one for 3 years. I figure when I took this pix a pint in the Nags probably cost about 50p .. or ten bob in old money. I have a deep suspicion that wont happen again. :heyhey:

    New Indian restaurant and takeaway is coming to Stafford town centre.

    It's taken over the old off the hook place.

    Another one?

    They might aswell call Stafford Town, Foodie town, you'll find a indian kebab chippy chinese pizza within walking around for 2 miniutes !

    Only thing I'd be happy about if the prices started coming down because of the competition, even just a little but they never do.

    Weird time to open too with Corona and it being summer.

    Can't understand why I think it's been there forever :?:

    Maybe it's because it just fits in with the environment right.

    I'd imagine living in a flat above any premises in MIll Street will have you drooling or locking windows! Mela Lounge, O-Kra and the take away further down!
    I'd think the Mela Lounge and O-Kra kitchens must be feet apart rather than counting in yards, even if one is under ground!
