The Totally Bona Fantabulosa A104 Balls Pond Road
The Totally Bona Fantabulosa A104 Balls Pond Road
For four years 1964-68 the writers Barry Took and Marty Feldman produced some of the greatest Radio Comedy ever in the form of Round The Horne. One of the segments of the show was often “Radio Balls Pond Road” where the double entendres flowed freely. In fact most people's Honi Soit had never been so Mal Y Pensed! Its fame was “crowed from John O’Groats near the town of Wick to the horse meat shop in the Balls Pond Road”, of which there is no sign today. The Over Eighties Nudist Leapfrog Team are also absent from this shot of the Balls Pond Road looking eastward near the A10. However you get two Routemasters as a bonus, feast your eyes on them while you can; they will soon be gone forever.
