2020 Week 2 – Night and Turbine

The night shot is of the pub next to the church in our village. It is often the case, it seems, that the churchgoer can visit the pub after church; on the other hand there used to be a rule in devout communities that you couldn’t visit a pub unless you were a traveller, and a traveller was someone who had travelled at least three miles. So if a pub was at least three miles from any other habitation, every visitor was a “bona fide traveller” (see Playboy of the Western World by Synge).
