Vigorous dragon-slaying

Pub-sign at The George at Alstonefield

The George at Alstonefield is a fabulous pub, right in the middle of an unspoilt village in the Peak District - so it attracts lots of walkers.

Unsurprisingly, its pub-sign features the most famous George of them all, Saint George, slaying the dragon. It's a vigorous, stylish piece of painting, especially for a pub-sign, but, sadly, I couldn't get information about the artist.

It's Saint George's Day tomorrow (April 23rd).


  1. Thanks for the reminder. Great mural that

  2. Wow! It's very dramatic.

    I'll have to remember that for tomorrow.
