A Strange Juxtaposition


Kirdford is an utterly charming small Sussex village which seems to be unable to make up its mind where it stands on the subject of imbibing alcohol. Facing the church....


to the left hand side you have the Half Moon pub. This is owned and run by the former model Jodie Kidd and has a good local reputation for its food.



Or to the right you have this classic sign. Its origins are lost in the mists of time, but it's very possibly a Temperance movement plaque or somebody with a huge hornet in their bonnet about the drinking habits of others! I think I might have suffered from the legs filling with water at some point in my misspent youth!


I'd gone over in pursuit of a specific gravestone, but it evaded me and instead we have an entirely different blog post content to the one I had a vague notion of writing!
