Hester Folk Pubs in England (69* d) Jack & Hammer in "Long Piddleton", Northants 07 Apr 03

Speaking of pubs, I'm a fan of American author Martha Grimes' series of mystery novels named after British pubs.

My British itinerary will take me through Northants, and I'm wondering if anyone could suggest a town that Grimes might have based the fictional "Long Piddleton" on, or a Northants pub similar to her "Jack & Hammer", where I could raise a half-pint of Old Peculiar in salute to Melrose Plant.

Yes, indeed, I'm planning the weirdest Folksinger/Mystery Novel/Ancestor's Grave/Ancient Stone Circles/Robin Hood lore/Radiotelescope tour of Britain that you could ever imagine!

Cheers, Hester
