    Possibly a small twig thereof, or possibly not.

    So is that an apparition, a manifestation, strange noises in empty parts of the building, cold spots, draughts, weird inventions of modern psychics/mediums, pets behaving strangely, people being touched when there is no-one within reach, the cameraman throwing things, Black Shuck or his kin, strange smells - ahh, the sewage ... ?

    People believed in the Conservatives and BREXIT so also believing in ghosts doesn't come as a surprise


    The same people sit in their cars and queue to spend money to eat dehydrated cow shit out of boxes at the north end of the town


    One special ingredient and millions could be put to rest, forever

    There's a new manager/tenant taking over when Oli goes in a few weeks - it's only likely to be 'shut' for a few hours, or at most one weekday evening, between their tenancies.

    He's clearly an idiot if he doesn't at least try putting burgers on the menu, but whether he will put in the amount of care & attention to detail that the current management have had in pursuing their philosophy, or whether Marstons will give him the freedom they have had to source high quality local ingredients, remains to be seen.

    Are they turning it into a bike/motorbike storage area for you to leave your mode of transport in overnight after you've been to the Bird perhaps?

    A company called Sir Maple 3 Ltd now seems to be involved in the ownership of the premises. There are a number of related companies with more or less similar names.

    I see what you mean, lots of companies run by the same people at the same address. Sandra for example has been involved in over 600 companies, many still active.

    She seems to be the link between all of the related companies I have looked at, other directors vary a bit. I suspect a series of investment companies with each company being a different group of investors.
