Thanks to J who has commented to point out that I had been spelling this place wrong all these years! J - sorry your comment was all garbled by the time it got to me and I couldn't really post it because it would need to be unscrambled. Anyway thanks and I have corrected it, and also noted that the Good Companions has been demolished - a couple of years ago, I think. It went right down before that too! Pity, at one time it had a very old fashioned dining room. Thanks anyway. Edith
