15:30 Just me and my mate. The owner was about and we had a chat with him. The roadworks outside the pub to make the roundabout cycle friendly are booked to last 25 weeks and the pub is feeling the effects on trade.

19:40 Meal stop. Busy. Large group came in and sat near us. One of their party was a screecher who seemed to find everything amusing. My ears took some time to recover.
