Officially, the pub is called the Golden Ball, but it has been known as 'Snatchems' for centuries, as it was a favoured target of press gangs 'recruiting' for ships at the height of the cotton trade.
A line on the white(-ish) wall to the left of the pub indicates the seasonal high tide mark. It's about two-thirds up the wall, well over the height of a car roof. The road is flooded twice every day, and always covered by driftwood and other debris.
