Charlton Cat, Charlton St Peter, Wiltshire

Picture source: Wendy Lawrence

The Charlton Cat was originally known as The Red Lion, later The Poores Arms.  In 1921 it changed its name to The Charlton Cat from the ill-painted lion of the original sign. The 18th century poet Stephen Duck was commemorated each year at the Charlton Cat by thirteen 'Duck' men who drink from the Duck Goblet. The chairman, known as the Chief Duck, wore a tall hat trimmed with duck feathers.
