Overheard in the Pub


We were out for dinner last night at the The Bell in Yatton Keynell. Really warm and cosy with a couple of log fires burning.

Chairman: "It's just struck me that you only ever see log fires down south. Up north fires are normally coal."

Hay: "That's probably because they use all the wood up north for making clogs."

  1. There were few things quite as evocative of this fine part of the country as the clatter of clogs on the cobbled street leading up to the mill. Now the mills have been turned into posh apartments for young professionals working in finance in Leeds and the clogs have become bespoke plant pots for their begonias.
