Cloudy but bright morning, fairly mild. The landlord of the Olde Kings Head very kindly let Joel leave his car in the car park "during his stay", which was very gentlemanly and probably saved us a lot of hassle.
We are meeting our house's previous owners for lunch and perhaps a canal trip, weather permitting.
Unbeknown to us The Kings Head has a curry evening on Tuesdays but does not offer food the rest of the day so we resorted to visiting nearby Sutton Hall, a stately home with connections to Lord Lucan, later converted to a hotel and now an interesting pub/restaurant. The food, service and surroundings were exemplary. Well worth a visit.
We intend staying here overnight and see what tomorrow brings.
