  3. Sure, I worked at Beeston Head Office D90, in various departments. Estate dept was my main place to sleep. Went over to D31 for lunch most days. As i remember it there were two places to eat, one a cafeteria style self servs and the other a proper restaurant for the bigwigs.

I think there is a picture on the forum showing the view of the famous "rathole" on the forum from the top of the hill. Cheers
