Guyhirn lay-by café: as seen on TV
Guyhirn lay-by café: as seen on TV
In the 1990s this place gained regional celebrity, including extensive TV coverage, as the owner welded himself inside in protest at the local council's wish to move his transport café as part of road improvements. Richard Humphrey has suggested that this picture was taken after the café was moved from Guyhirn and has provided a grid reference which we believe to be reasonably accurate. I am also indebted to Michael Trolove for his help.
