Actually it is Brian Mays house - he bought it and rented it back to Patrick for a peppercorn rent (so that Patrick would not have any money problems).







Yes that is correct.

I will confirm now! %)
Correct: Too easy.  My Grandad owned that pub in the early 1900s. Mum was born upstairs as were her 8 brothers and sisters! It is only short distance to the oldest distillery in the world.

I think this is SY 'AMAZON', once owned by Arthur Lowe aka Capt. Mainwaring (Stupid Boy!)
I saw it once at Portsmouth IFOS (could be where it is in photo) but it seems to roam the world now.

Bluebird got in first with Admiral Lord Collingwood (no surprise there - he can almost see it from his hoose) {-)

So, abiding by the "rules" it must be his turn, if he wants to post one
