Header Challenge 27

THREE


I first visited the Three Stags Heads in Wardlow Derbyshire around 20-25 years ago. Back then it was just the front room of a farm house that you could stop at for a drink. A small room with a stone flagged floor and a really old cast iron range complete with white-washed walls. There was a small bar with a couple of old tables and chairs. It was easy to imagine you had stepped back in time 200 years to a farmhouse. The only ornament I can remember was a glass display case containing the mummified carcass of a cat! The pub has since changed hands, but was pleased to see the interior had not changed at all and even the cat is still there on show. As you walk through the small front door, and step down into the room it goes quiet and you get the sense that strangers are not exactly welcomed by the locals and their dogs. Treat the place as you find it and you realise what a great little pub you have stumbled across, and the locals are friendly. It's quite an experience, especially as the ale is very good and well kept, but be warned... it is very strong. There's a sign on the wall next to the bar which say this: 'Please do not ask for lager as a smack in the gob often offends'.
Join in with all the Head Bangers as we go 'Head 2 Head' in this weeks Header Challenge. The theme this week was picked by Fishing Guy and is '3'.
My header this week shows 3 old boots being recycled as planters.... I saw these a while back on a narrow boat. I had to smile at them..

Tom: Neat shot for your header and of the stags. Very nice in the spirit of three. Where did you get three shoes, this question may go unanswered.

Martha said...

I really like those three boot planters. I think I might steal the idea. My biggest problem is I only have two feet. I would love to meet the person who had enough feet for three boots. :)

I wonder if they are all left boots or right boots?
That thing about strangers going into pubs and it falls silent is so amusing. I've seen it so many times in films and on the TV.

Tom: That video is perfect for the three post.

Your header is a three footer! LOL! And the stags could be a wonderful header.
