Answer to missing eagle question

Home » Latest News » Answer to missing eagle question

Did you identify the missing Eagle in Celia Bloor's news story on Saturday?

The answer is that the eagle was etched on the window of the old Barclay's Bank in Cheshire Street. That has now been converted to the dispensary for the recently expanded Boots Pharmacy and the window disappeared during the refurbishment.

Back in the 1980s, Audlem boasted two banks, the Barclays branch and over in Shropshire Street, a branch of NatWest, now Kebab Land.

For those that want to bank locally, fortunately it's only a short step down to Audlem Post Office where transactions for a variety of banks can still be conducted in the village.

Both are foraging for the best on offer, regardless of risk, within limited familiar confines, ignoring the audacity of any law that paints yellow lines on many of its most desirable food collecting areas.The yellow lines outside the Coop are a beacon...
