A Postcard from East Anglia

Maalie's recent visit to East Anglia included a stay with old school friend Stuart and his wife Christine, in Kenton, deepest Suffolk.

Shortly after arriving, it was clear that more beer was required to sustain all parties through the weekend and Maalie and Stuart were despatched to the nearest location where such supplies were available, namely, Debbenham, some 5 miles away.

With carbon footprint in mind, the obvious transport choice was bicycle. The stocks of beers (an 18-can case) safely strapped to Stuart's rear rack (You can see the yellowish case of beer on the rack of the right hand bike in line with the pub's sign pole below), Maalie suggested, in true TCA tradition, a pint in the local, the Woolpack, where a selection of guest real ales was available. The choice of the day was Exmoor Gold.

Has the dog got a name?

Yes, the dog is Barney, a springer spaniel. He didn't come with us to the pub.
