    Default Beery Forest

    Just spotted on the front page new pictures there are two trees, Walnut in Heworth & Litten in Stafford, no doubt similar names occur elsewhere

    Can we make a forest from pub names?

    Walnut
    Litten
    Royal Oak
    Elm
    Apple
    Yew
    Fir
    Beech
    Cherry

    Over to you

    I found lots of Pear Trees (enough to make gallons of perry) plus an Orange, a Chestnut, a Willow and a Rowan.


    How about this one though?
    There are many diseases,
    that strike people's kneeses,
    Covid19! is one by name
    It comes from the East
    Packed in bladders of yeast
    So the Chinese must take half the blame.

    Apologies to Spike Milligan

    In Biddenden ,Kent there used to be the Castleton's Oak which refered to a previuos landlord's coffin, used as a bar top, and much of my formative drinking-Watneys Special Mild-took place in The Firs at the end of Fifers Lane in Norwich.
