City Quay, near the all you can eat buffet

Kevy: This is a sea mine from the second world war. The shore and beaches around here were littered with them when I was a kid. We used to play on them, climb up them, jump off, hit them with sticks. You wouldn’t be allowed to do that these days because of all the health and safety regulations. I think it’s a shame for today’s kids that they’re so wrapped up in cotton wool.

Anna: There’s been an all you can eat buffet of some description here since the time it was a bustling dock. When it was pehs, the pehmakers would bake an extra heavy crust, fortified with sawdust and straw, to stop anyone trying to abuse the system.
