Tassie’s mushroom pub at Jericho

jericho pub

Its walls collapsing and roof gone, this historic hotel on the Midlands Highway, near Jericho, is disappearing fast.

Alongside it are the ruined stables where generations ago coach horses were changed.

The building has been vacant for two years. Since then it looks as though Nature has been trying to carve it into a brick and mortar “mushroom” (note shape).

If you would like to support my work, you can leave a small ‘bar tip’ here of $2, or several small tips, just increase the amount as you like. Your generous patronage of my work and research, however small it appears to you, will greatly help me with my continuing costs.
