SK5739 : The Cursed Galleon

The Cursed Galleon
The Cursed Galleon
Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem is reputed to be the oldest pub in the country and, although that claim is open to dispute, it is certainly of great antiquity. Unsurprisingly a number of myths and legends have been associated with it but none are stranger than the 'cursed galleon' displayed in the upstairs Rock Lounge. It is said to have been donated by a sailor who may have built it to pass the time at sea. The story is that the last three people to have cleaned it all died in mysterious circumstances within 12 months. Of course there seems to be no record of who these people were, when they cleaned the galleon and the exact circumstances of their deaths. Nevertheless, the model at least gives the appearance of accumulated cobwebs and dust, and is kept well out of the reach of customers.
