Short read special day.
One more new tick from the Solway coast, and another surprisingly traditional one.
Nice bit of north Gower-like coastline, seemingly the playground of all of Carlisle’s retirees.
We all like a good mud flat, don’t we ?
And most folk like a traditional looking wet-led boozer in the middle of nowhere, don’t they ?
Perhaps they don’t these days. Just a couple of Professionals at the bar and the single old lady (a pub feature rarer than normality in Oldham) drinking soup.
Your cutting-edge beer choice; Speckled Hen or Belhaven (NBSS 3). Solway CAMRA, you spoil me.
“There ya go darlin‘”
I’ll let them off the “Livin on a prayer” soundtrack.
And in a world of pomegranate and fig beard wash, what a joy to get retro toiletries.
