Sunday 17 September - A Lazy Day

No great hurry today. We ambled out in time to see the end of the annual ceremony to celebrate the anniversary of the Battle of Britain. It was at the Quarry memorial after a service at St. Chads.  It was attended by a couple of coachloads of servicemen from RAF Cosford and the Mayor and Councillors were there in full regalia.  The Quarry was also used today for the start/finish of a marathon.  This space is well used by many different activities.  Yesterday there was a dog obedience circuit.
Black pudding and Stilton cheese tower

The main event today was at the Carvery lunch at The Coach and Horses.  It came up to its normal standard. I had roast chicken and Mary had roast turkey.  The roast potatoes were exceptional today, more like chips with a wonderful crispy skin.  Our plates were both very full and I didn't deem it prudent to take pictures.  The blood pudding and Stilton tower was a novel starter, the assertive flavor of the cheese making an excellent to foil the dark sausage.

After lunch I staggered down to the station to buy tickets for tomorrow and joined Mary for drinks at The Three Fishes.  No trains were running.  The line to Chester was closed for engineering work but the rest of the station was also closed because a person was hit by a train in platform 6.  At one time there were two air ambulances and a full police terrorist team out.  The person was not killed and there was talk of attempted suicide.
