I used to drink in the Ship in the 60s - I think it sold Almond's bitter.

Looking at this lovely photo from the angle taken,I now know why I am so out of breath when I get to the history shop,after a hike up Standishgate and then over Millgate!

How did you get all the people to move out of the shot?

Ship Inn?...Always the "Ship Hotel".
sometimes referred to as "The Yachting Station" by the local imbibers.
