The Crooked House, Himley

This is the Crooked House in Himley, Staffordshire. Our photograph was taken in the early 1900s and shows an extreme example of mining subsidence. I wondered what had happened to the building and when it was demolished and, to my amazement, discovered that it still exists and looks like this. It is now a pub and restaurant. Who’d have thought? Do the tables have two long and two short legs, so that your meal doesn’t slide onto the floor?
