This is one of the pubs in the area that is known as the "Five Idlers."

The poem that goes with the story is as follows:-

The Star which doesn't shine in the sky,

The Woodman who doesn't cut down trees,

The Ship that cannot sail the seas,

The Mill which doesn't grind corn,

And Who'd a Thought it!
