The Green Dragon at #Alderbury was used by Charles #Dickens in Martin Chuzzlewitt, as he was staying nearby while writing this novel. Dickens used many hostelries in his books and in this case he renamed it the Blue Dragon; perhaps the sign was somewhat faded to a pale blue and he misinterpreted it as it would have been unlikely that the name was on the building. The green dragon came from the earls of Pembroke (many of the early pub names used the badges of great families).

fabric 'quilted' wall! I would possibly do this, but I'd do it on cork maybe or just a small portion of an office or laundry. Neato idea though for a fabricholic like me!
