Peace and quiet for a 1970s man at the weekend often involved tending the vegetables down at the allotments or a pint at the local pub. In this film we get both! After harvesting cabbages at Lensey Farm Allotments we go on a whistle-stop tour of Erith pubs including The Cross Keys, The Prince of Wales and The Britannia. Swift half, anyone?
