Best Bit-At 1.40.It’s Widnes railway station’s claim to fame.
Widnes railway station is one of two stations where Paul Simon reputedly composed Homeward Bound the other being Ditton railway station,it was probably written in both and also elsewhere.
Simon was anticipating at that time the failure of his debut Album (Wednesday Morning 3 A.M.) and he was also missing his girlfriend Kathy Chitty.
Simon and Garfunkle (and then Simon alone) used to open all their concerts with Homeward Bound except for the ones in their hometown of New York,those always opened with ‘Mrs Robinson.’
‘But all my words come back to me in shades of mediocrity.’
