Not sure, Whups. I was actually inquiring for a friend. She isn't sure where the old legion was but could find out if necessary. Thanks so much for replying.

Irene as you come past asda on your right after about 300yds the road bends to the right. After about another 300yds there is a give way on the road just after that there is a left turn the legion was on this corner on your left
