Tony Prior lived opposite the shops in Abbots Avenue West. He was a leader of the 19th St Albans Scout troop which used to meet in a wooden hut behind the shops until the took back the land and built the garages. The 19th group is one of two groups of scouts in Sopwell. He talks about the group and what they got up to, including camping down by Sopwell House. The group eventually folded mainly because of a lack of voluntary and parental support.
