Speedy lives, racing around, lots to do, no time to stop, then one day or some odd day, or some particular day comes along and in it there’s a sign; you stop to read it – twice, no more than a simple 3 minutes of your time, but what it says is striking…

The Swan Inn
& 1,2 & 3 Swan Terrace
destroyed by enemy action
at about mid-day on Sunday
23rd May 1943 with consider-

After that, you walk away much slower, much softer and much more removed from all around you, and furthermore you contemplate a situation of absolute pain, horror and devastation precisely 83 years ago, down that same path you casually wander today.
The land on which you stand has played many a-parts.
Pass with a new eye and a different tread.
