Near Sawrey

Friday, October 27, 2006

It was a fantastic sunrise this morning and it was dry at first.
The rain arrived before breakfast was over and it has been raining on and off all day.
The village has been busy with families taking advantage of Hill Top's extra opening day.
Sarah along with two more of Matthew's friends, Jen & Frazer are staying for the weekend, they are all booked in at the Tower Bank Arms for a meal tonight. They arrived at Windermere station and Denis & Margaret who were out for the day called round picked them up, well that was the plan but Jen & Frazer's train from Glasgow was late and they were picked up at Oxenholme.

We called in at the Tower Bank for pint before tea and it was buzzing, just one couple yet to arrive, some regulars from Belfast they should be here around 10:30.

I would just like to say in reference to your comments about the Tower Bank Arms. We are regular visitors to the lakes and we last visited the pub on friday the 10th of November and what a difference. The pub was very sterile, no character, and certainly very quiet, we decided to visit it again on the saturday and found it to be just the same.
This pub has definately lost all its character and warmth of which you would not expect from such a well known and world famous hostelry.
Bring back the locals and as you say make this pub buz again like it used to.
A crying shame.
