    Spotted this one the other day whilst picking up a customer,went back today and got the picture.Got talking to the owner who said he bought the house back in the eighties from some builders who had bought it from Mr. Button.Legend has it that although only an off licence he was not averse to selling a glass or two and an escape was possible through the garden should the local constable turn up:D Taken in the Somerset villge of Coleford an old coal mining community Also got this one from Bath,it's interesting as it has the company that painted it name at the bottom company name
