The Jug of Tea Flickr group has been renamed accordingly, and now contains photographic evidence of what remains - a pile of bricks! Tributes are flying in and all 23 group members (me included) are officially in mourning.
A tribute has also been posted on the fantastic I Like blog.
I will miss the old place, not to mention the fact that I have forked out good money for a room at the Midland which HAD a cracking view of the JOT. I was looking forward to celebrating my wedding anniversary looking out over Morecambe bay and the Jug of Tea. I might ring them to see if I can get some money off.
Here's a couple of shots I took of the old place: And finally, my last ever shot of the Jug of Tea.
It has been good to many photographers and passing tourists over the years and will be sadly missed. I think at one point it served jugs of tea as well!
