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:

    That’s the down-town frieze,
    Principally the church steeple,
    A black line beside a white line;
    And the stack of the electric plant,
    A black line drawn on flat air.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    The reason is:
    rats leave the sinking ship
    but we . . .
    we . . .
    didn’t leave,
    so the ship
    didn’t sink,
    and that’s madness,
    Lear’s song
    that’s Touchstone’s forest jest,
    that’s swan of Avon logic.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)
