I know I've shown you my village in other posts from other visits home - but this
most recent visit was special as I shared part of my childhood with
granddaughter Jasmin. Even those rusty railings are special to me - the same ones
my friends and I did 'gymnastics' on as kids. It's amazing that they've stood there for
so many years!
In the village is the 'local'. The Devon Dumpling pub.
Go to this earlier post for more history of my childhood days where, even
back then, this former farmhouse played a big part.
Still a social gathering place for a pint or a great meal. We had lunch here and
I was so pleased to find the quality of the food was still excellent and, although the
pub had been through a rehab since my last visit, all was for the better - modern
facilities and a nicer outdoor 'beer garden' area, but most of the actual historic
inside remains as before.
I did miss the older signage - but apparently the owners thought they needed
to move on with the times and the 'buxom wench' has been put in storage!
