A graveyard next door is handy for those who drink too much.

Great picture. I just returned to Massachusetts after visiting my
Dad and brother. Walked past this pub daily on my wall from Standish to Aspull.

Brian from Aspull...I've got a good friend who lives in Acushnet, Mass.
Hoping to visit them sometime next year.

Thank you for kind comments. I was tempted to say I wonder if they sell Boddingtons Ales(Boddys),

Acushnet - home of Titleist golf balls. Nice part of the state. I live in Leominster. You are welcome to stop by for a visit. We Wigganers have to stick together

We can confirm Irene Roberts statement that there is indeed a gravestone with 31st April on it. It's just down from the top lefthand corner of the church, as you look from the pub.
