Is that mound where the coal-loading apparatus once stood?

UNLOADING would probably be a better word.

Bang on priscus, 'The Tippler'.

I seem to think I have seen this photo before....with daffodils among the trees ?

I was trying to avoid that name, as we have in the past experienced acrimonious arguments on this site concerning the nomenclature of tipplers versus tippers

It's was once said that a tipper was seen on Crooke canal bank, whilst a tippler was seen in Crooke Hall Inn.
