Tedrow, where did you go?

I remember with absolute clarity where I was and what I was doing when I learned of the death of John Bonham. I also remember thinking that there would almost certainly be a tribute on that week's Radio One Friday Rock Show. The tribute was this April 1, 1971 concert. I recorded it on tape and spent many hours listening to it. With the advent of CDs, I longed for the day when it would become available and almost everyday for more than ten years I would look in the local CD stores in a vain hope that it would be there. Well, one day it was! I was delighted. I hadn't listened to my taped recording for many years and it all came back. The concert has a very intimate feel. Not on the official version, though, are a number of points where Robert Plant and even John Bonham talk to the audience. I have always had one question - at the end of the broadcast version, Plant announces that they will be in "Tedrow next week, Tedrow" (I don't know if that is how it is spelt) and I have never been able to find out where it is.
