Mr Pig goes Victorian

Mr Pig stops for refreshment, unobtrusively watched over by the special agent who is appearing to be casually drinking tea but is really alert to any danger

I think Special Agent might have splashed a little Irish Whiskey into his corfee, Bill...I would not depend on him if a pig-napping is about to happen.
Bill Phillips: I had very little faith in his ability to protect old Eb
good thing the Speical Agent is still keeping watch - that little girl looks suspicious!
Bill Phillips: Yes very much so. A pre-emptive strike might be in order

Watch out too, for the lady in the red coat.....
I hope Mr. Pig has his pepper spray ready.
Great shot smile
Bill Phillips: I think she is an undercover agent but I'm not sure for which side
I am glad that you at least gave him food and drink Bill... even if you made his sit at a table by himselfgrin....petersmile
Bill Phillips: He doesn't have very good table manners Peter

I can see how alert the special agent is, even if Mr Pi is off guard
Bill Phillips: That's alert??

And Piggy is so alone -where are all the photographers - and no bacon buttie in sight?
Bill Phillips: He does look rather abandoned. But it seems he has a cake
Young Chad slurping his hot drink is the real nugget.
Bill Phillips: Chad is always a nugget.

I loved this building but cannot now remember its original purpose
Bill Phillips: It was rather fine and, like you, I can't recall what it was originally

Chad Alert?!? Now you must be having a laugh ;o) The pig looks more alert!
Bill Phillips: I know it is an oxymoron smile
I wouldn't worry. He has food and two drinks. He will be fine.
Bill Phillips: I wish i shared your optimism Mary

Such a shame that they have to use those awful cardboard cups. I'm glad now that I wasn't ableto come after all. The special agent looks somewhat shifty; could he be a double agent?
Bill Phillips: They had proper cups too. The only way that agent could be shifty is with a rocket tied to him
Mr Pig is doing his best to keep a low profile but needn't worry as he is in safe hands with Chad Bond keeping an eye on the situation
Bill Phillips: I'd like to think that reassuring Janet....but I can't
Chad must be very professional with his nonchalant manner, no one would ever guess his role.
Bill Phillips: I don't think even he had guessed it Martin
Mr.Pig may very well have terrible table manners, Bill, but relegating him to another table won't help. Don't we all learn by example and shouldn't he be seated with the grownups where he can watch well-mannered individuals sup their refreshments with refinement?
Bill Phillips: Well mannered grown ups? These were shutterchance members Beverlywink

He has disguised himself well as a tourist (Special Agent Doveton, not Mr Pig who sticks out like a sore thumb!)
Bill Phillips: I just can't imagine Chad as a tourist. Mr Pig doesn't do inconspicuous

As a local I can tell you the building was originally situated at the foot of the Wrekin Hill (in Shropshire).

It was erected in 1889 and was referred to as the Forest Glen Pavilion. In the summer it served drinks during the morning and afternoon for the frequent visitors that climbed to the top of the Wrekin Hill. In the evenings it was used to host private dinner dances and other functions.

When these things went out of fashion and it closed, the building was saved and reconstructed at the Blists Hill site.

I remember it well in its original location ;-)
Bill Phillips: Thank you for this I will have to tell Chris
