I wonder why after all these years Peter Sallis doesn't have a headstone it is so sad, you'd think a well known actor of many years from a well known sitcom someone would have got him a headstone.
Hi Kath, it is quite a while, years, since I last visited Compo's grave. I knew that Clegg had been buried next to him. I am very surprised to hear that there is no headstone for Clegg. I do hope that one will be put in place. I won't be able to visit it because I am so old that I doubt if they would let me out of the cemetery. Incidentally, we are near neighbours, my wife and I live in Rotherham.

IF you look back through the threads there are any number of mentions regarding this . I think we drew the conclusion that Peter's wish was like Cleggy " For no fuss and to have a simple funeral" and so the Family complied. I personally wrote to his agent in a very reverential manner to enquire about the stone and was accorded a very curt flea in my ear stating it was a private matter .
Hi Jamie, Welcome to Summer Wine. No age limitations here. I used to be 17 but that was 67 years ago. WOW, that makes me 29 now :D ....Well, I can dream. Tell us more about yourself and keep posting.

Here's a light hearted post. Just a bit of fun. It's a sort of six degrees of separation thing. What's the link between Compo and Pink Floyd?

long shot but is it Pink Floyd Learning to Fly single and episode where Compo is determined to fly dressed in a bird costume and at one point he is on top of a van driven by Clegg with Foggy supervising [sorry just can't remember the episode]
I know the episode you mean. I think it was called 'Into The Wild Blue Yonder', but no that's not it, although I like that. Here's the link,
Compo - Kenneth Cope (appeared in Lotsw) - Mike Pratt (Kenneth Cope starred with Mike Pratt in popular series Randall And Hopkirk) - Guy Pratt (son of Mike Pratt and David Gilmours bass player) - David Gilmour - Pink Floyd. Hope that's clarified that.

Have a nice day

Hi, Emma.
Really sorry to hear that you were in an accident. Sounds like you are on the mend since you say you are starting to get out and about again. You have my best wishes to a speedy and full recovery, all the best to you. It is good to see you on the forums again.
Hello, RickAns,
I had a devastating accident a while back, and have been holed up in my house for quite some time. Just now venturing out...
