I RECIEVED a poke in the back on Saturday from a Mr Bayes putting me right on where his dad's shop was. I knew exactly where Mr Bayes senior plied his trade, but wasn't sure what that stretch of road was called. Instead of jumping in my car, burning more diesel and finding out for myself I consulted a map. It clearly states that the stretch of the main street between Berrycroft and Speed Lane is Pratt Street while it is actually Hall Street. Who published the map? Cambs County Council, makes you wonder, doesn't it?
