Back in 2003/4 I did a website about our village (pop 5120) not being into photography at the time the images where really just snaps taken with a little compact. Of the 10 pubs at the time 4 have since closed.

The sight of all the ordinary modern cars parked next to those impressive old buildings in historical styles seems so incongruous.

Brilliant thanks to all.

There are so many 'old' building here in England that I don't think that we really notice it OH ;-)a

The Cotswold stone cottage we used to live in just outside Stroud was built around 1735. The 2 cottages that you see today were built as 4 farm workers homes and just normal now.

I have a very interesting book 'The English Pub. A History' by Peter Haydon Richard and it gives a fascinating history of them.


My ambition for a good while is to grow old disgracefully. So far my wife tells me that I am doing really well!

Trafalgar Tavern. On the South bank of the River Thames at Greenwich UK. Viewed from the river.
Maybe Lord Nelson used to take his crew there for a few pints when they they on shore leave. (If you believe that you'll believe anything):lol:
Top Picture. 2003.
Bottom Picture 2016. The Royal Greenwich Observatory can be seen on the horizon on the left of the picture and all telescopes would have been trained on the Time Ball.

I haven't been to that part Ray, but I do know what the 'Time Ball' is there for and I do believe that you will have to explain (much more peaceful than a gun) :rolleyes::rolleyes:

I'm also willing to bet the Nelson didn't take his crew in there. If he had then most of them would have vanished me-thinks. Pressed crews weren't allowed ashore at home ports were they :eek: and the majority of them would probably have have been pressed? :rolleyes:

Nice looking pub,

Inside The Swan / Dawlish in 2010

The resident dog couldn't be bothered as people had to step over and around him :-)

Used to be a nice pub, almost only locals. When I went back a few years later it was all blaring TV and conversation impossible vmad

Not sure if it is still inbusiness.

Hi John. There are a few restored Time Balls around the country and I have posted a few. Edinburgh is interesting because they fire a gun from the castle as well as drop the Time Ball on Calton Hill.
Simple explanation of the Time Ball. A time Ball was the early version of a standardised time signal - 1700 - 1800s style. It depended on line-of-sight and therefore it had to be on a tower in a prominent position. The accuracy would be rather doubtful by today's standards but it was the absolute 'Bee's Knees' of timekeeping in its day. Didn't work too well at night on on a foggy day though. In the 1800s the Time Balls became synchronised electrically by land line to Greenwich. Now superseded by the atomic clock and the GPS system.
I was only joking about Nelson's crew in the Trafalgar Tavern - hope nobody thinks I was trying to re-write history.:-)

Especially since Nelson passed on at the battle of Trafalgar. Crews may have hoisted a pint in his honor at a bar named after the battle.

John, just between you and me, I’d rather be deported to Oz or Taz before I would destroy our history :-)

I think he came back preserved/pickled in a barrel of brandy.:-)

Good grief Ray, there's no need to get THAT drastic mate! :eek:

Besides, they have cut down on doing such horrible things as deporting people down there :rolleyes::rolleyes:

After all, they are missing 2 X's off their beer and don't have 6X :mrgreen: That's about my favourite beer by the way 8-)

Righto you two, we stopped that nonsense ages ago. Just don't accept any more these days, even send them back :rolleyes:
Anyway, when they did deport they didn't appreciate the landscape,or the grub (tucker) yet alone the living quarters. We won't get started on the clothing :-)
Beer! It's only use I've known is in cooking. Some swear by beer pancakes, cakes etc
1 cup sifted all-purpose flour · ¼ cup white sugar · ¾ teaspoon baking powder · ½ teaspoon salt · 1 egg, beaten · 1 cup beer · 2 tablespoons butter, melted

Pubs, now that's another matter. Those thatched rooves and old pubs look so enticing.
You've got some beauties.

If you ain't careful Richard I'll post a photo of me in one of my Aussie bits.

Sweathog hoodie, Akubra titfa, Adelaide 1985 F1 GP sweatshirt or the like mate.

But I will agree that your beer is probably better in cooking :twisted::twisted::rolleyes:
