Just before the town centre is what looks like a tutor beamed building housing the Cheshire Cat restaurant. Looks like any other old building until one reads the plaques outside. The one on the right reads
"Widows Almshouses" Built in early 17th century as cottages. Converted in 1676 to almshouses for 6 widows by sir Roger Wibraham, moved by the death of his wife and sons"
The second tells of structural repairs made by W.A.Schofield. He saved the almhouses from deterioration and colapse and preserved them. The work took 6 years and included the creation of the Cheshire Cat.

Down one of the side streets we came upon the Vine Inn pub. As it was lunch time we decided to go in for a meal. We can highly recommend the food here and for the real ale lovers like me there are several superb ales to slake your thirst . Excellent value for money and I can reveal the burger tower is just that, a large tower. Two home made 8oz burgers in a batch with salad and Chips. Each burger was a good inch thick and topped with a rasher of smoked bacon and cheese. It beat me! It not often that happens!
Back at AmyJo, still bathed in sunshine, we took advantage of the near calm conditions and got the drone out. This was the first time I got to use it fully and had it in the air for a good 20 minutes
|Did this before but could not resist. The white square on the grass is my make shift landing pad.|
|Our mooring. We reckon we are in exactly the same spot we moored back in 2014.|
