Burn Bridge - The Black Swan Pub

The Black Swan Pub

Its local name is the Mucky Duck. Apparently there has been a hostelry on the site since charcoal burners used it in ca.1650. Opposite the pub on Burn Bridge Road was the smithy, later a grocer's shop until the 1960s and now converted to an office.

Famous quotes containing the words black and/or swan:

    I’m afraid to look in the mirror. I’m afraid I’m going to see an old lady with white hair, just like the old ladies in the park. A little bundle in a black shawl just waiting for the coffin.
    Paddy Chayefsky (1923–1981)

    And of the swan in death these dreamers tell
    of its last flight and how it falls, a plummet,
    pierced by the freezing bullet
    and how three feathers, loosened by the shot,
    descend like snow upon it.
    Patricia K. Page (b. 1916)
