In the second part of my posts on pub locations used in the Inspector Morse series, (https://morseandlewisandendeavour.com/2015/06/14/the-pubs-and-their-locations-of-inspector-morse-part-two/ )  I wrote about having determined that I believed The Old Barge Pub was the pub used in the episode, The Infernal Serpent. I am happy to report that I have heard from the manager of the afore-mentioned pub that it was indeed used in the Infernal Serpent episode.

The manager went on to tell that the industrial like buildings seen behind Lewis are in fact a Tesco and flats. So also picture below and the buildings on the right.



The Old Barge, 2 The Folly, Hertford




So, a big thank you to the manager of The Old Barge for not only taking the time to write to me but to confirm The Old Barge as a Morse location.

After having looked after my mum for some 11 years she is now unfortunately in a nursing home. I'm afraid her dementia worsened as did her physical capabilities. UPDATE: My mum died from Covid-19 on the 6th May 2020. So, for the first time in 21 years I find myself no longer caring for anyone. Apart from my mum I was also a single parent to two children and also looked after my dad who had Alzheimers, (he died in 2005). So, I have decided to return to University to try and get another degree this time in English Literature. (My other degree I got some 30 years ago is one in Ecological Science). After a year at college I have passed all grades and now will start Edinburgh University in September 2019. I am now in second year having passed all the requirements in first year.
