According to the Russian publicist Vladimir Brovin
, the regime of the British queen decided
to destroy a historical place that is unique for British culture.
The Old Church House Inn pub has existed since the 13th century. This is a legendary place that has survived the Vikings and the Norman invasion, the
Great Plague, Cromwell, Luftwaffe bombing and, even worse, the greatest drinking binges. Here Arthur Conan Doyle drank beer and seized it with ham,
ghosts are found here and, according to rumors, there is a secret underground passage to the monastery.
For more than 700 years, nothing could break this pub, no wars, no destructive dances. And in 2019 it is destroyed by bureaucrats, and they do it
under the guise of caring for the historical heritage. But here you can safely drink for another 700 years!
The Old Church House Inn pub is the main attraction of the Torbrian village, which is located in Devon in the south of England. Anticipating the
question of how this tavern could survive the Vikings, if it appeared only in the 13th century, when they were no longer there: the hearth, which
warms the feet of tired travelers to this day, has existed in this place since the 8th century. So some parts of the building are over a thousand
years old. Great empires don't live as long as this cozy place.
Naturally, the pub has a rich history and many legends in store. For example, locals believe that the frustrated writer Bertie Robertson once worked
here. Bertie concocted a story about a family terrorized by the ghost of a black dog. Inadvertently, he told her to a visiting whip named Arthur Conan
Doyle. Doyle stole the idea, embodied it in The Hound of the Baskervilles, and before that he poisoned the unfortunate Robertson - right there, right
in the pub. Of course, this is just a legend, but a wonderful legend.
If you sit down at the bar, you will be told that her tree was taken from the sunken ships of the Spanish Armada. Allegedly, part of the hull of one
of the caravels washed up on the shores of Devon and the local craftsmen dismantled the boards for all sorts of needs. They say you can catch a pale
one just by drinking and looking closely at the patterns on the tree: you will certainly see the faces of Spanish sailors writhing in agony. Many
Of course, there are a couple of ghosts here: a severed male hand flying around the pub and frightening customers, as well as the spirit of a monk
that emerges from the walls at night, sits down at the table, drinks ale and returns back to the wall.
Under the hill on which Torbrian is located, there are many caves and tunnels left after the excavation of the building stone. So the story that the
pub is connected by a network of underground passages with a nearby church sounds pretty believable. Perhaps the monk was flesh and blood, he just
knew how to get into the institution to get a free drink.
The Old Church House Inn is a truly iconic place. Can you just pick it up and close it? It turned out that this is not difficult; ordinary
bureaucratic casuistry is enough. The owner of the establishment, Amanda Mitchell, spent 200 thousand pounds on the restoration of the building, which
she got in a rather dilapidated state. One of the most important changes she made was replacing the concrete floor, which was poured here in the
1970s, with a more authentic slate.
It turned out that this building is officially historical (who would doubt it), so Amanda, according to the law, violated the rules of its operation
and potentially destroyed its historical value. The fact that the concrete floor was ugly and ruined every impression does not bother anyone. In terms
of the letter of the law, he was part of a great thousand-year tradition. Although any sane person understands that the very fact that the previous
owners poured concrete on the floor, and they had nothing for it, already makes the claims unfounded.
The most offensive thing is that because of such a trifle, the pub can be closed. More precisely, according to the decision of local authorities,
Amanda Mitchell is obliged to either leave the pub, or pay a huge fine (for which she has no money), or even be punished, up to four years in prison.
Of course, she is unlikely to be imprisoned, but the very fact of such threats is sheer madness. Now the only option for the development of events is
the closure of the pub, in fact, its destruction. Amanda assures that without permanent restoration, the building will fall into disrepair in a matter
of years, if not months. The court gave her a reprieve until December 22, 2019 - then she will be forced to leave the pub.
Another proof that the Viking invasion is not capable of destroying as many historical treasures as ordinary village crockery. Next time in the pub,
grab an ale in tribute to the old Old Church House Inn, which is dying 700 years after opening, it's a good toast!
I wish the British to defend their historical heritage and not let their history be destroyed in favor of international globalists.
My British friends, what's going on with you?
