So nice to get moving again although the freeze came late this year at least it only lasted 17 days. Last year I was stuck at Newbold for 7 weeks. So with the diesel tank topped up and a few more bags of coal on the roof we set off in search of wood as our supply had dwindled to 6/7 logs. We stopped the night at Brinklow as a late start and fueling up took it`s toll on the daylight.
pub has closed and become one of the 16 pubs closing weekly in the UK. This number is the last 6months of 2011. LINK
At least the Greyhound at Hawkesbury Jct. is surviving. It`s been there since the early 1800`s and is now Grade II listed.
here it is a planning application.
Please bear with me with the links as i am trying to help friends of Jaq and I in the USA who perhaps might be pleased to read more. For example our listed buildings here compare with U.S. historical listings and for sure a bar is not a pub.
