    Why not change the name of the pub. We could call it something really saucy and I am not talking HP, Worcestershire or Tomato here.

    I don't think I have the power to simply change the pubs name when i cant think of a design!!...sadly!
    Still no sign of a Lord Badminton and I assume as Sellers used it as a lampoon the title cannot actually exist.....I'm trawling through the history of the Beauforts?Somersets as we speak.

    Yeah I ended up trawling through Wikipedia, sadly nothing really bright occurred. I keep on waiting for Soup or ob to come in and bemuse us with history.

    Any historic or horsey theme (& I'm into racing) would be lost on me - the name simply suggests shuttlecocks to me...

    Hope this helps , a Nicholas Boteler was lord of the Manor of Badminton untill 1608 http://books.google.co.uk/books?id=X...oteler&f=false and was probally desended from this bloke http://www.stepneyrobarts.co.uk/12755.htm.

    If you want to go further back the Manor of Badminton was part of a wedding gift ? to the Fitz Alans from up here in Shropshire http://www.archive.org/stream/antiqu...ogoog_djvu.txt , its about half way down under Wem

    Good work OT. I shall research some of those names to see if any eye-catching Heraldry jumps off the page. Oddly, what with all the talk of name changing, this pub was actually called 'The Half Moon' only a few years back..... Damn those Meddling breweries!!

    Have you ever found yourself with too many ideas and cant decide which theme to go with? I have a feeling that may have happened to whoever did the sign for the Vulcan Arms.
