Life in Newburgh on Ythan

By Talpa

Another day, another pub.

Another entry in my occasional series of good names for a British pub. Today, I give you, The Golden Lion and Cockerel.

The cockerel sits atop the steeple of the old (1788) town-house in Peterhead and the lion is roaring away on top of the Reform Monument. The monument was erected by public subscription in 1833 to celebrate the passing of the Reform Act on the 4th June, 1832, which extended voting rights and made parliament more representative of the country.
