A bit more exciting than the coal-cellar.
Landlords redecorating their pub discover mural that had been hidden under wallpaper for 50 years.
Andy Harrison and Tom Smith were redecorating the Cock Inn pub when they noticed something hidden under the wallpaper: a stunning mural of lakes, bridges, and wildlife. The painting is signed George Cole, 1953.
'We are definitely planning on the mural. We have been in touch with artists about getting it touched up. It has been covered up for about 50 years and we think it is around 70 years old.'
No mention of whether the artist was an out-of-work well-known actor :-)
