Millom Town


And so, Black Combe.
So dark, so daunting.
Towering above the Irish Sea.
Your distant views.
Hazy shadows floating
of Mourne and Man.
But there’s more to see.

It’s that welcome bar
at the foot of the mountain.
That foaming ale
you can’t wait to down.
But the hardest task
in this far flung kingdom
is to find a pub
in Millom Town.
