One of your quiz questions could be "Where in Warwickshire are cocks green?" :-D
This was my effort Gibbo, well after Mick had taken us to Acocks Green

There is, in Warwickshire, a narrowboat company who are considered (by those in the know) to be the Rolls-Royce of narrowboat makers (when the name of Rolls-Royce meant something). This is Warwickshire Fly Boats.
