John Lockwood Kipling (Rudyard’s dad) designed the astonishing decoration. This is a reason for me being here.

I like Longton. It is not up itself, and the oatcake (more like a pancake) with cheese and bacon from the market were lovely, but this shelter is a disgrace! This front has massive holes to let people out onto the buses and all the wind in the Potteries in onto the people. It has one light and one list of buses, which calls Hanley ‘city centre’, which is different to what is on the front of the buses.

Crown & Anchor. Only £22 for the night for a single bed, including the view!

Joules Brewery blond does not taste like a lemon, like English blonds usually do. The brand is a reinvention but uses the original well, and does taste good.

Joules Brewery pub. Like the Slumbering Monk. The lass was too shy to give her name, but did talk to me, so she’ll obviously talk to anybody.
