Pub brik-a-brak is a strange phenomenon. It often seems to hark back to the fashions of former times. Tin plates on walls, hunting scenes, rubbish water colours perhaps. Some go for piles of classic books — Moby Dick — that might suggest a quiet place of contemplation, but are never touched. If you’re lucky there may be some reference to an interesting local history.
But what was in the mind of the Jackson’s Boat landlord who thought a hangman’s noose might make a pleasant decoration?
