Used a members old black and white pic for this so all coFox and Goose.JPGlours are guess work, date and location of pub unknown to me. Will donate it as a raffle prize for our next meet.

Eric this is the photo it must have been taken pre 1905 as the pub was rebuilt in mock Tudor style shortly after that that, there has been a pub on the site since the 1600's I believe.

Terry, I like this view much better, would you mind if I used it for a painting ? The trees are a bit intrusive, could make it a winter scene with no foliage. Eric

Gone but not forgotten R.I.P.
Carry on Eric and do what you like, I have no claims at all to it, and that goes for any picture I post. On the odd occassion I may post one of my own pictures but even then anyone is welcome to them. Phil, I probably have posted it somewhere, but likewise I have copied it from somewhere, most likely facebook.
