The Beatles Through The Years has been one of the leading internet entertainment sites related to the Beatles since its incarnation in 2011, for one simple reason: we focus on the fans. While we do provide the history of The Band, talk about the latest Beatles-related news in our blogs and on the Tea and a Butty Podcast, discuss their albums and movies, and swoon over pictures of the lads, we also highlight the individuals that make up this particular fandom, because Beatles fans are what keeps the legend of the Beatles alive.

Video: The Beatles Visit Smedley's Fish & Chip Shop.

Shot on 15th September 1967 at James and Amy Smedley's Fish & Chip shop in Taunton, Devon, England. The Beatles and the rest of the cast of the film pile into the shop and munch their way through Fish & Chip lunch. Only a small part of this footage actually made it into the film (The shots of Nat Jackley and Jessie Robbins eating chips) The rest of the footage is wonderful to see as the Beatles eat their fish and chips and drink bottles of Tizer and Corona Orange Pop (Corona is a brand that doesn't exist any more but Tizer is still going strong!)

James & Amy Smedley were the grandparents of "little" Nicola, who was the little girl who John was speaking to in one memorable scene of the film. Amy was a passenger on the bus and when she casually mentioned to the Beatles that she owned a Fish & Chip shop, the bus made sure to make a stop there.
