GUESS THE PUB WONDERS WHY THE PUMP CLIP’S TURNED ROUND

I bought this latest round of “Guess the Pubs” as a job lot, so there MAY be duplication. Would you even notice ?

There’s almost a clue in the title but our location is an 11 letter village only famous for one product (No. 22).

Our product was named in 1795 by a semi-famous Martin, also the son of a Tay(i)lor, who had better Chemistry GCSEs than I did.

By coincidence, this Martin came from a German town of 11 letters.

Our mystery pub is in a plain village, but only 10 minutes from some of our greatest natural beauty, though obviously my OS extract won’t help you at all.

While the usual cricket clue as to location will defeat Russ, which is the main purpose of this quiz.

Our village amenities include a “winching service” and a minicab business where Superman may have worked.

Which is more exciting than our mystery pub, though there’s a bonus third for Tiny Rebel chocolate sour for naming the TV show.

“No real ale” says What Pub, sadly; but just WHAT WAS on that lone pump ?

  1. Found it, but only because you left the town name in your German picture πŸ˜€

    I wonder how you actually came to be aware of that connection.

  2. Heck, we learn some stuff doing these.

    I didn’t realise that the winching service was for real – for a change – and only just over the road from the pub.

    I get actually the cricket clue for once, which relates to the batsman, not to the other guy.

  3. “Would you even notice ?”

    Probably not. πŸ˜‰

    I’m here for the words, not the photos.
    (funnily enough I said something similar about the Playboy magazine years ago) πŸ˜‰

    Klaproth?

    “By coincidence, this Martin came from a German town of 11 letters.”

    Wernigerode. Definitely Klaproth.

    “While the usual cricket clue as to location will defeat Russ, which is the main purpose of this quiz.”

    Sigh. You know me so well. And yup, that wipes out my keen guess of Klaproth. πŸ™‚

    1. I think you actually deserve to win this one, Russ, as you actually deciphered the clues !

      The cricket is David Gower, flamboyant English left-hander and constructor of centuries (tons), Gowerton is the closest station to our unpronounceable pub (Masons Arms) in Waunarlwydd, site of one of our largest Titanium plants.

      1. I had a quick look at all the villages in the Swansea postcode area with 11 letters, and even clicked on the Masons Arms, but didn’t look closely enough. Well done Russ for identifying the German metallurgist. I should have got this, as titanium was my favourite metal when I was a schoolboy.

        I’ve identified a photo on Google maps where the reversed pump clip can be seen from the other side of the bar, but no joy in identifying what was previously on sale, as the image is not clear.

        I’m quite happy to take 2nd place. πŸ™‚
