A tiny oak-panelled passageway alongside www.bbr.com (owned by the Berry & Rudd families since 1698), leads to the delightful Georgian Square of Pickering Place.
The smallest public square in Britain.
Located here was "The last Texan Embassy in London: The Legation for the Ministers from the Republic of Texas to the Court of St. James; 1842-1845".
The square was a popular place for duels, with locals claiming that the last duel in England took place here, but neither party lived to tell the truth.
Below the structures are some of the most interesting and substantial caves for Porto & fine oak casks & bottles, where space may be rented for your descendants pleasures!
Captured while waiting for another… not to duel but to have a smile… Uploaded while running out of things to do for late planes – snowstorms…
