THE LION, THE WITCH AND THE PUB-DOOR...

Spotted by Roger: 'The Gold Cup' public house in Ascot, which was closed when the landlord retired and, despite protests from CAMRA (The Campaign for Real Ale) the brewery decided to apply for planning permission for a housing development. The sorrowful sight of the once-convivial facade has been somewhat relived by an interesting addition to the boarded-up front door...



The work of a literate graffitist? Or knowing advice to passers-by from a seasoned explorer?

Who knows...

Of course, the first discoverer of Narnia, C S Lewis, was a man who was noted for enjoying a pint of good English ale, so maybe – just possibly – it's worth a try...

Next time you're passing, Roger, give the handle a bit of tug and see what happens. However, if it starts to open and you notice a few snowflakes drifting out, I'd check your travel insurance before going further...

Are you sure it wasn't Roger who was responsible?

Well, now you mention it...

As if I would! Mind you I'm convinced it's Press photographers who start those floral tributes after stabbings, famous deaths etc.

At least someone had a sense of humour.

Or another dastardly trick by the White Witch...

At least it's that, I wish someone did that in my hometown than the usual gang symbols I can't translate or something racist against our president (saw such a sight at a city park once). This is more sophomoric fun to me!
