The Pub of Subsidence


Crooked House_DRB 091013

Beer and ale to the left, white wine’s on your right.

The Glynne Arms in Staffordshire is better known by its nickname the Crooked House. Because of subsidence damage caused by mining, half of the pub leans heavily to one side. Apparently, it can be quite a challenge to rest a beer on the table without spilling it. According to the locals, if after leaving you turn and look at the pub and it appears perfectly normal, you can be sure you’ve overindulged at the bar.

    Looks fine to me. What’s this post about, anyway?

    wheels– Ooh. I’d drive that route just for the “what if” factor.

    rain– It’s not obvious? The foundation was undermined by meerkats. Cutesy little standy-uppy weasel-lookin’ bastards.
