|Looking over (!) Bishops Castle from the castle ruins|
|Although the Bishops Castle Railway closed in 1935 it is still remembered in the area and there is a museum devoted to it (only rarely open)|
|The Three Tuns was a traditional pub with no music or electronic games.|
We wandered back down the High Street and to the end of Church Street. There was a lot of yarn bombing. We spotted two bicycles, railings and arches festooned with knitting. The piece de resistance was discovered in the bookshop/cafe where two historic buildings were displayed to full effect in 3D knitting. There was a jar in the pharmacy window "Castration Salve". A cottage was gradually being enveloped in vegetation, there was moss growing on the roof.
"Moi friend Ted killed a pig the other day and brought the skin home, didn't know what to do with it so he made some scratchings and gave some to me. Oi got into trouble with moi wife twice, first for eating some and second for letting Ted make it."
|I washed down the fish and chips with a Three Tuns Rantipole Bitter. It had a good finish.|
