As regular readers of this blog will know I have very attached to the14th Century Red Lion pub in Little Missenden. We have been going there most weekends for twelve years and both of my daughters have sat beside the log fire in the winter and played in the gardens at the back since they were very, very young.
When my elder daughter and I turned up there tonight we were faced with the scene in the photo above. A suspected arson attack last monday has reduced the pub to a shell presumably damaging its wonderful wood lined interior.
It's been a bit of a blogging pub for me too with Doc, Gary, Halley, Jon, John, and Tom all having visited with me.
This is a very, very sad day.
