Red Lion.jpg

 

A fine old Georgian frontage on this pub dating from 1820.  Sadly, Ward's brewery no longer exists and Wikipedia tells a sad tale about it.

 

Returning from Croatia - but don't get home until after midnight, so unlikely to be commenting, etc.  And the Iris DeMent video is there simply because I like her singing style.

What a glorious old pub this is. I read the sad story of Ward's, it's enough to make you weep..
Tom Wilson: Indeed it is, Chris.
A sad tale. I used to quite like Vaux's bitter
Tom Wilson: A sad tale indeed.
A fine old building but a sad story about Ward's on the link.
Tom Wilson: At least the pub is still there.
My niece that goes to University College of London is on break in Croatia at the moment, coming home soon.

I like Iris No I love this song but an English girl, Kate Rusby does an incredible version. I have featured it on my blog a few times.
Tom Wilson: Well, she is certainly enjoying better weather than London! It was beautiful. I know the Kate Rusby version - I have a couple of her CDs - they both have very distinctive voices.

A sad story indeed. The lovely ld pub has far more character than that thing next to it.
Tom Wilson: That's certainly true, Alan.
Times, they are a changin'.... Nice photo, Tom.
Safe travels...
thanks for the music!
Tom Wilson: Sometimes for the best, sometimes not smile
