An English Country Pub
We have a lot of nice country pubs nearby. In fact I think we might visit some or all of them for lunches during autumn – all for the purposes of blogging about the experience of course! (I feel a 10-part series on “LOCAL PUBS” might be in the offing!)
The Plough at Eaves, in the hamlet of Eaves near the village of Woodplumpton, is one of the oldest. It dates back to 1625. I’ve not found out much about it yet, so that’s another good reason for a visit.
I have just read that it has a long and interesting history and was used as a refuge by both sides during the Battle of Preston in 1648. That must have been interesting, especially if the opposing sides (Cromwell’s Roundheads versus the Scots) were there at the same time.
So now I need to Google “Battle of Preston”.
But before I get sidetracked, this picture of the pub is my post for Cee’s Black & White Challenge: SHADOWS
