The Busby Stoop Inn is a very old inn. The gallows refer to a man called Busby who was convicted of murder, and dragged from his chair in the pub to be hanged on a gibbet across the road. The chair remained in the inn for many a year, but anyone sitting in it was 'assured' of misfortune. The chair is now in a museum in Thirsk, suspended from the ceiling, so that no one can sit in it.

Pretty place, polis ! I am not very good at critique but the one thing I did notice is that the angle you have taken is very sharp so the roof and chimney and the steps at the side seem quite flat..almost like a cut out. There is a rather overall 'white' look to the image. I am afraid my photographic vocabulary is singularly lacking but I hope you know what I mean ! Grin

Hi,

Whaaaaa, that's a but scary for the comment, if ever I visit the Busby Stoop I'm not sitting where that chair was Wink.

If you look atr your upload you will see a white strip to the right and bottom, maybe you added a boarder that got cropped ?. It's a nice building to take a picture of but if you had turned slightly to the right it may have worked better, of course this is just my opinion. In the mod I have tried to show what it may have looked like with more room to the right and slightly altered the contrast.

Take care

Martin

The white line I believe has been caused by the photo slightly askew in the scanner. (Still at the starting stage with the Epson). I have further shots of the pub from different locations. Will upload 1/2 when I get the time.
Camera Pentax ME Super with Sigma 28-200mm lens. Film FujiColor 200.

As regards the chair you will be able to find out more on google by putting in Busby Stoop. One story is that there was an RAF station in the area. One serviceman sat in the chair for a dare one evening. Driving back to camp he was killed in a road accident. I believe there were other mishaps to people, and that is why the chair was removed to Thirsk museum, and suspended from the ceiling to prevent people sitting in it.
