The Axe and Compasses pub

My husband has a weakness for the amateur, shambolic and down-market which delight and charm him. Me? I tend to find them depressing and soul-destroying, so even though I had suggested a visit to beautiful Saffron Walden and palatial Audley End House, we ended up at a privately owned toy museum/dinosaur ‘experience’ nearby, which was right up his street. On the way home we did, however, stop for a break in the beautiful little village of Arkesden, thatched cottages, stream running through the village, village church and the Axe and Compasses pub. So both of us enjoyed a bit of what we liked.
