It certainly doesn't get more British than that. It's a long time since I have seen a real fire burning in a grate. As a boy, and I am talking back in the 1960s, one of my chores was to light the coal fire in the living room. This shot brings back a few memories.And here I sit with the A/C running and it has gone midnight.
Thanks for your comment Calvin!I like fireplaces and think they make a pub really cosy, even if it's not yet winter outside.
