Sunday 15 May - Haunch of Venison

The market area in town was very different today.  Yesterday they were selling strawberries by the punnet while today there were people selling second hand stuff out of their car boots - a flea market on wheels.
The Odeon Cinema was owned by a one time mayor of Salisbury.  It is magnificent both outside and inside.

The mayor and lady mayoress lead the procession from the church to the town hall

Lunch was at the Haunch of Venison, a pub that is over 700 years old.  Devon brown crab cakes, roast port belly with all the trimmings and sticky toffee pudding.  Very good but very filling.  The pub has reputedly the smallest bar in town.

An evening stroll to the Old Mill at Harnum was very pleasant with mire striking views of the cathedral.  The dogs were not playing in the water this evening and the field was left clear for the mallards, swans, wagtails, swallows and other bars.
The Old Mill at Harnum has become our local
