I just found this web site containing photos of Peter Bellamy, Heather Wood and Royston Wood. The info says the pictures were taken at the Topic Folk Club at Bradford Ukrainian Club.
Hope they are of interest to some of you.

Of much interest thank you. They were all dear friends of mine. Peter would always stay with us for the Cambridge Folk Festival, and I a couple of times with him for the Norwich one before he moved to Yorkshire. My late wife Valerie and I were among first Jenny called to tell of his death in 1991, and I was at his funeral. Royston had stayed in my Cambridge house for the Cambridge Folk Festival of, I think, 1975; he died in an absurd street accident in NYC in 1990. I had dinner with Heather in New York in 1992 ~ last time we met face to face. She was then singing in a group with two New York guys, one of whom, she told me, had said facetiously to her "Is it OK ~ you are not a very lucky lady to sing with, are you?" She had, fortunately, it appeared, taken this as the joke intended. For some years after that, I had one of her beautiful self-produced Xmas cards every year, though not for the last few years. I last heard from her in an email in January 2011, on learning I had got married the previous June; and she sent me a flier for a concert in early 2011 in which she was singing. I take it she is still living in W 54th St.

Quacking pictures Mr Duck. Thank you for the link.
I never got to the Bradford club but I remember seeing the Tradition at Toad Hall in the upstairs of the General Havelock pub in Ilford. They were doing their farewell tour at the time and if my memory is not playing tricks they had a spare slot in their tour and came back to say goodbye again a month or so later. Years later I had the pleasure of meeting Peter Bellamy and mentioned the farewell tour. He said: "Yes, everyone kept saying what a shame it was we were breaking up but we still couldn't get more than £10 for a gig."
