An early digital image of mine of the village of Barthomley which was an ancient parish within Cheshire. During the English Civil War St Bertoline’s Church was the location of a notorious massacre of at least 12 pro-Parliamentarian prisoners by Royalist troops. The fantasy novel Red Shift, by Alan Garner, is largely concerned with the Barthomley massacre.

The White Lion Public House, pictured here on the right, is a half-timbered, thatched building dated 1614. It is a Grade II* listing building, and is included in CAMRA’s register of Historic Pub Interiors.
