Not La Rochelle, but correct country. Very historic containing rather a long history.
Alcohol doesn't solve any problems, but then again neither does milk.

Not Tours, further north.
English tourists are drawn to this place for two reasons, separated by one thousand years.

You have it, I visited some time ago and explored the town, visited the CWG on the outskirts and viewed the Tapestry, despite being in France it is a lovely town.
Well done FD2, your turn to shoot.

A man in Geraldine, just south of Christchurch, has spent 25 years reproducing the Tapestry:

4M I am pretty sure that it is a free house. Excellent grub but not been there for a few years.

Edit, no. Just checked the list of Arkells pubs.

Once it had been established as being in Cheshire a search of pubs in Cheshire produced it rapidly.

I had better declare OH as I am out for a meal shortly and tomorrow is taken up with returning to Taipei, so it will be a couple opf days before I can log on again.
