My reader may well recall that way back in January 2014 I wrote about the Inn sign at the Tayleur Arms at London-on-Tern (the old armorial sign had, at some point in time, been replaced with one of a clipper called the Tayleur) and I then went on to have a very pleasant conversation with Lawrence, the landlord, who was very receptive to looking into changing the sign back to an armorial one at some point in time. Unfortunately, a few short months later the business was ravaged by fire and totally destroyed.
Well, I am very pleased to report that the rebuild is virtually completed and although the pub sign has yet to make an appearance, the business has reinstated its heraldic origins with a pleasing relish.

Needless to say that I am delighted (not sure about the use of mantling when the helm is not present but hey, it's progress).
