The Great British Woodstock: The Incredible Story
of the Weeley Festival 1971, By RAY CLARK
In the tiny village of Weeley, near Clacton on Sea, Essex, local bands were being booked to play and make a bit of money for charity. But the Weeley Festival soon spiralled out of control as top name bands attracted 150.000 revellers with the resultant chaos of fires on site, pitched battles with the Hells Angels and more. The tiny village was overwhelmed and then at the end came the expected question ' where did all the gate money go ? '.

Revelations from one of the heroes
The final 3 years of the m.v. Mi Amigo - as seen through the eyes of Caroline’s long-term active and stalwart supporter, Albert Hood.
He first went out on an “anorak visit” back in 1975, then on August 13th (!) 1977 he started running his own trips, bringing anoraks - and who knows what else - to help keep it all going.
My Memories of a Dear Old Lady
By ALBERT HOOD
Available in soft back, with over a hundred photographs (b/w)
The Port of Tilbury had been home to our ship the Ross Revenge for ten years, but the port authority eventually decided that it was time for her to either leave or be compulsorily scrapped.
On the last day of July 2014 we sneaked her out on to the Thames and headed for a new location on the wide River Blackwater in Essex.

Known, secretive and suspected forces behind offshore and other radio stations of the 1960’s and 1970’s - including the enigmatic RNI - Radio North Sea International.
