The half timbered building photograph is of Beeston Smithy. Charlie comments thus: “Beeston Smithy where we often dined. Mrs (Mother) Stockton made excellent currant cake, and the teapot was monstrous”. This day, Sunday 10th May Charlie is getting his new bike, a Grubb, run-in by cycling round his favourite haunts in Cheshire. Another note about his new steed. The bike was fantastic but it took a lot of experimenting over a few months to sort out a comfortable saddle. He went through a lot of borrowed saddles before he was assured of total comfort.
