Are there still tolls to be collected, Bill?
Bill Phillips: It is not beyond the realms of possibility that someone still has the right in theory to charge a toll Ray. Like many old laws that still exist but are no longer enacted
I wish our Motorways' tolls were as beautiful as this Bill...Superb image!
Bill Phillips: No chance of that I fear Richard

I cannot remember to have seen this impressive house, sorry.
Bill Phillips: We didn't go up the Hanbury Road Philine. The Estate agent that Angela used to work for once had this up for sale and I remember having a look round.
We moan about toll roads, but it's nothing new this desire to extract money from the populace.
Bill Phillips: Indeed it is not Martin. At least in those days you didn't have vehicle excise duty

Is this the photo to disprove the always raining in Droitwich crew? In fact so much sunshine it goes around corners! Nice blue tiles.
Bill Phillips: Anything is possible in Droitwich Mike
I would like a square house. It is nice and neat.
Bill Phillips: You clearly have a tidy mind Mary
Very interesting Bill, and what is that squarish looking house with the arches in the brickwork?
Bill Phillips: You can be very hard work sometimes Chadwick
It has stood the test of time very well Bill
Bill Phillips: It has been lived in as a house for a long time now so has been looked after!
