The Green Lion
"A bit green, you say..? And you don't mean in a 21st century, eco-positive kind of a way..? Hmm... I'm trying to rise above it... Anyway, you'd be green if you'd spent the last hundred and forty years lying under a tree."
The lion called Determination (one of the four guardians in the centre of Saltaire, sculpted by Thomas Milnes) is determined not to let a bit of green lichen spoil his majesty. I wonder if they get scrubbed every now and again - I think they must do. I don't think he looked nearly as mucky last time I snapped him.
Apologies to anyone who hoped they were going to read a blog post about a pub!
