It’s that time of year again when the Christmas lights are switched on in town centres. These days they aren’t quite as plentiful as they used to be when lots of small businesses would join in and light up their shops too.
Today’s picture is of Ye Olde Leathern Bottel at Wednesbury. They say Dick Turpin, the highwayman was a regular in there many years ago. The coaches used to stop there from Birmingham and they had a workshop at the rear making parts for guns. I expect the coaches carried small gun parts to Birmingham.
