  1. Absolutely splendid post, Mrs Potter. A cracking day out.
    Since reading Charlie Connelly’s book Attention All Shipping: A Journey Round the Shipping Forecast, the final chapter of which was influenced by the view from a bay window of the Trafalgar Tavern, I’ve had a yearning to visit the pub and take a leisurely look myself. Hmmm. It’s not the image I had in my head. Looks a bit of a rough old spot. But I suppose pubs on the river always were.
    That painting of the men o’ war on the stocks at Deptford, with sailboats in a patch of sunlight on a very choppy Thames, I would dearly love to have that hanging above the mantelpiece.

      I keep meaning to read that one and not getting around to it. The Trafalgar had scaffolding up on one side, so perhaps is being done up, though I hope it’s not going from tatty to tarted.
