Getting to meet him wasn’t easy because he was usually surrounded by minders. Fortunately, I was having a chat with Ronnie, in his office, one night, when Miles dropped by for a social visit. While they were chatting I sketched him with conte crayons and, when I’d finished, went to put it under my chair. He suddenly said, “Is that me?” I replied that it was, and he beckoned me to hand it over. He stared at it, nodded and said “Okay”, then started to hand it back, thought about it and then picked up a pen from Ronnie’s desk and signed it, which was a bonus.
A bit later on, I had a drink at the bar with one of his heavies and asked him why Miles wore shades, even in a dimly lit club. The guy just grinned and said, “When he’s toting those things everyone he looks at appears to be black, so he’s happy.”
An interesting item from the Hanwell .org. uk site.
The Hanwell Sarsen stone
It is thought probable that this large glacial boulder was swept down from the frozen north during the Ice Age.
In the early 1900s, when Townholme Crescent was being excavated, this stone was discovered in a layer of gravel just below the surface. Many stone implements and cinerary urns were found around this stone indicating that it was an important burial place for the Saxon tribes of those times.
It is interesting to note that other Saxon remains were found in 1886 where Oaklands School now is which is within a hundred yards or so of the Sarsen Stone excavation site.
There are several versions of the origin of Hanwell's name and one of the contenders is 'Stone by the spring' which involves the well known 'Hanwell or Sarsen Stone'. The stone, (han) would have been originally deposited in the Ice Age close to a little stream, (wiella), which -Flowed into the Brent and was excavated from where Townholme Crescent now is.
Early Christian Saxons used the word Saresyn (i.e. SARACEN) as a synonym of the words pagan or heathen, and as these stones were popularly associated with Druid worship, they were called Saresyn (or heathen) stones. In the tin mining areas of Cornwall old attle or rock was called 'Sarsen' or 'Jews' leavings' on the assumption that Saracens, Jews and Phoenicians had once worked there.
Sarsen stones form the outer circle at Stonehenge. The Hanwell 'Sarsen' Stone can be seen just inside the main entrance to Elthorne Park.
