Spon Gate

Recommended Posts

I remember visiting Spon St. in Coventry on a trip to the UK. The link gives a bit more information https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spon_Street .  I also noticed there is a Wetherspoons' pub called the Spon Gate that boasts an Indian restaurant.

Have I missed the reason why Spon Gate is being brought up?


(The Goons had 'spon' as being  'a grey-green metal, mined in agony by the inhabitants of the Urals'   ...if I remember correctly...)
