2 Tiny Pubs

2 More Pubs - No BIG deal!
Whilst driving around our local area you may have noticed our
"Rebellion Served Here" signs attached to the walls of some
drinking establishments, proudly declaring that you can get a pint
of our delicious beer at the bar.
Well, we've got two new pubs and they are situated in the lovely
little village of Bekonscot!
Bekonscot Model Village, if you've not been and you really
should go, is the world's oldest and original model village opening
for the first time in 1929. They have raised over £5.5 million for
charity, with over 14 million visitors since 1929.
I met Barry, one of the model makers, in his workshop. He helps
to build and maintain the models. He took me on a pub crawl to the
9 pubs around the village, after which we chose a couple of pubs
that would be the owners of the new signs, The Barley Mow and the
Grantley Arms. It was the smallest and the most civilised pub
crawl I've ever been on.
The Grantley Arms
The Grantley Arms is a grand building with a lovely terrace
overlooking a little cricket pitch, the perfect place to enjoy a
beer on a summer's day and conveniently there is a stable next door
so you can park your horse, but remember - don't drink and
The Barley Mow
The Barley Mow is a beautiful thatched village pub, close to
town, with pink walls, a lovely garden and surrounded with a white
picket fence. They probably serve a cracking Sunday Roast....
After my tour of the village I looked around and it is even
better than I remember. The attention to detail is incredible; you
could spend hours and not nearly see everything.
We're proud to have the signs up in such a popular and historic
Next time you go, see if you can find our signs...
