That "piggy bank" seems to be a bit of an exercise to open and remove the collection. I hope there is some easy access in back because unbolting the cap with all those painted bolts might be a day job.
I thought of these high tidal range little ports every time there was any desire to do a check anything on the bottom. No need for this!
Yes it is. Thanks for your kind words
Make that 3 Pints! Bob.
Lovely photo ,I visited this myself last week .
Ah, more of the "monster" tidal range sands. If I recall correctly, another case of "wish I'd had digital then," the marker near this shot showed a range of more than 50 feet (15 m) as sort of "average" there.
A very interesting ceiling design! I see it was a localman that did that in 1636 so that probably explains its originality.
Still my "gold standard" for the cheese bearing the name. I've no idea whether the cows grazed on nearby land or the cheese was actually made and aged in Cheddar, but a big chunk I bought to snack on while walking along the stream has never been matched in taste and texture. Still hoping to find some about forty years later!
Pretty striking and there was no loss of any "character" from the past. I like it better than the old white cliff. No idea of whether the restaurant itself adds anything to what has increasingly become "destination dining" on 8th. Some seem to just offer highly priced, bland food in slick and somewhat numbingly similar "decor." The only new one that gets my pretty unqualified approval is one serving very good Balkan food in a "small plate"(tapas format) way with a unique renovation across the street.
