An example from Chester
The reason is that you will see some of the credit is again given to the business nouse of Yorkshire men. (See also my post of 22/8/11.) In this case, Samuel Smith's Brewery of Tadcaster saw the obvious financial advantages of keeping open a famous old pub which adds character to its environs. Acknowledging this assistance from the other side of The Pennines would have been a problem for me as a Lancastrian but something which must not have troubled the rich and successful people of Cheshire.
I took the photograph below on a recent visit to Chester because as soon as I saw the plaque describing the restoration of The Falcon public house, I thought of how Lyme Regis would benefit from similar treatment being given to The Three Cups Hotel. I hope that others in Dorset will agree.
