Sir Roger Moore

Recommended Posts

Just been watching the Bond movie ‘Live and Let Die' starring Roger Moore and looking at his biography.

I seem to remember a rumour in the 1960's that he was for a time living in Newstead and was seen driving around in his trademark Volvo (The Saint).

Can anyone confirm this?

Yes, Bramcote end of Beeston Fields Drive, mid 1960's. He had the property, don't know if he actually lived there.

Newstead Abbey or one of the big houses that stand back off the A60 on the way up there, I was told.

This is beginning to sound like a collection of urban myths which got out of control. :)

A bloke in the pub told someone that he'd heard from his mate who knew a guy who swore that Roger Moore had bought a house in Radford, and was living there with Elvis and Lord Lucan.

The myth is that a Roger Moore bought a big house on cow lane at Bramcote.......the guy was called Roger Moore but wasn't the one everyone was hoping to be.....

I heard it was the A60 somewhere near the Hutt pub, which he frequented, allegedly

You're all wrong - I know because he rented an attic room from me in my former council house in Lenton.

Should that not be: 01955 007007?

Reminds me of a chap who joined the RAF in the same intake as me. His name was Jimmy Bond. Of course he got the last the digits of his service number '007'; so when he went on to pay parade his had to call his 'name and last three' "Bond 007, SIR". He stuck it out for about a month before 'buying himself out'. Poor sod.

Mick might know if this is true, there was a police officer in Nottingham who's number was 100, his surname was Watt. He was very bright.

That explains things - I can see why Sir Roger would want a flat share in such a sought after development :biggrin:
