Kevin Holmes & Trench Puzzles
I think I first encountered Kevin in the very early eighties, chancing on his fun-packed puzzle stall in London’s Coven Garden. At the time my finances, or lack of them, prevented me from indulging myself in his many treasures. He is constantly besieged by eager puzzle-hunters from around the planet, either looking for a souvenir, or a wicked challenge for a know-all friend or relative. He stocks most of the Pentangle range of puzzles, but mainly he lives up to his nickname of ‘The Cube Man’.
His range increases regularly, mainly with his own designs, and his stall is a regular watering hole for the puzzle-thirsty traveller. He can maintain conversation with several would-be customers as well as a flock of regular visitors and friends simultaneously.
I have made several friends as a result of chance encounters at his stall.
