While doggies can be prodigal
In matters scatalogical,
It's hard on the community
To dump poo with impoonity.

The Ancient Village of Torver lies in a beautiful wooded valley close to Coniston Water at the southern end of the Lake District National Park. 

‘Thorvergh’ owes its origins to the Viking Norse incursions of the eighth century when they got tired of all that rapin’ and pillagin’ and decided to settle down. Of course, it was all mud huts back then (‘torf’ and ‘erg’: turf roofed hut) and most of them have gone now, but the Church House Inn dates from 1378.
(and other old stuff)

He'll be sat on a wall somewhere in the village.

The Odds & Sods Box

Can you tie a knot?
Do you know the right knot for the job?
Can you tell a sheepshank from a sheet bend?
Would you hang your life from the best knot you can tie?
If not and you'd like to know, try The Knot Book
by Geoffrey Budworth, available from Amazon.
I'm a bit of a knot knerd and I wouldn't be without it.
