Aww David that pub looks lovely, I know its summer, but I bet its got a lovely log fire in the winter, great to sit round with friends and a drink 

Yes, a real chocolate box jobbie, Lily, and food to die for.

....no, I'm in Staffordshire, OL....but the salt belt must extend south. There are no salt workings these days and haven't been in my time.

I think Cheshire provides most of the salt & grit for the highways over the winter.

As you know there are a lot of salt mines in Cheshire, OL and as it happens a few near to me.....in fact, there is a little village named 'Salt' close by and this is the village pub named 'The Holly Bush'.

Pleased to hear that, OL....though technically the caterpillar was a better pic.

The wife's sister & myself had a good night too.

David......did you actually pick Mr Ugly up to out him on that white background.....urghhh 

 

Of course....how I suffer for my art!

I donned a pair of latex gloves to pick it up (wimp) then put it on a piece of scrap melamine out of the shed.

Could tell you how it was hissing & snarling, but I won't.

Anyway....I thought it was a good take.
