Too orangey for crows

I’m not sure if anyone was listening, but somebody in charge of the renovation of the former Muckley Corner Hotel clearly didn’t like that shade of tangerine. Last Sunday, I posted the following picture and expressed some surprise over the remarkable shade of orange employed.

Not at all sure about that orange. But the building does look nicer. 6:12pm, Sunday, 3rd July 2011.

It seems there were plenty of raised eyebrows over the tango for the once-lost boozer, with twitter and Facebook abuzz for a couple of days. Fear not though, as when I passed the site today, it seems that the owners have toned it down a bit.

That looks a bit better. Interesting that with a contrasting colour scheme you can see the former hotel's history as a row of terraces. 6:32pm Thursday, 7th July 2011.

Workmen are still busy, and lots of work seems to be ongoing with a new porch arrangement on the front, and lots of work going on inside. I still have no idea what’s going to happen to the place, but I wish the new owners well.

    It’s an odd name Muckley the closest meaning I can think of is dung field! Ironic really given amount of treasure that’s surfaced from the local soil. I can’t but help but think of the old saying where there’s muck there’s brass
