....There's a Pickled Egg over here as well, still trading apparently,

Image

....achieved a food hygene rating of 2, from St Helen's Councili in December 2014 :!: so in need of some improvement.

351 Sutton Road St Helens if you are ever in the area and fancy a pint, a pickled egg and a bag of salt and vinegar crisps :)

.....continuing on the "Pickled Eggs" around the world theme here's another which unfortunately has now ceased trading under the Pickled Egg name

Image

This time it was sold on and opened under another name

"Pints and Pies Neighbourhood Pub"

Its in the Lehigh Valley otherwise known as the "Allentown-Bethlehem-Easton PA-NJ Metroploitan Statistical Area".

We have sampled the cuisine of this area in the "Somerset Diner" at Easton NJ. Huge portions well recommended.

Hasn't got a great track history as a pub name, the only surviving one on the entire planet, apart from the FCF's very own virtual pub, is that rather run-down establishment in St. Helens.

The most ancient of Pickled Egg pubs, was one in Clerkenwell London. The current street Crawford Passage, was formely called Pickled Egg Walk. The Crawford name comes from a former licencee of the Pickled Egg.

You wouldn't expect the old boozer still to be surviving.....no this is the streetscape today in Crawford passage

....yes not an up and coming "pop" band but this

Image

Its on its Southern route today, but the view from the Picked Egg beer garden is second to none. Things will probably kick off from about 1.00 take off time.

Image

The Pickled egg will of course have a bit of merchandise for you to enjoy

A quick 5 minute drive for me and I'll be sitting on a village green waiting to see her go by. A group of us collected enough money to get a couple of our late friend's names put in the bomb bay, so it'll be a poignant moment as it flies by.

I love that Vulcan, saw it last year but no hope really for this year. I find it sad that such an aircraft gets grounded but after the recent disaster it's probably for the best. Anyone know where it shall rest, Duxford I assume? I haven't visited there for years, was my favourite playground in my early years.

Righty-Ho, pay attention........ ! At about 25 seconds in, if you pause, that's me above and to the right of the letter 'R' in 'Farewell' wearing my red motorbiking jacket - I walk to the right just after that :) The Vulcan did another circuit and departed west to east directly over the pub (sadly not the Pickled Egg, but the Noah's Ark instead), giving it the beans as she left :-D
