Monk of Chester

Once upon a time in Arcadia, and most probably on a Thursday, ladies and gentlemen abroad and on the streets in search of fishing tackle in the northern town of Chester would take themselves off without dawdling to Henry Monk's.  There, they could buy fishing tackle from the century before as well as the one to which they now belonged.

Should you be a lady or a gentleman abroad on the streets in this the year of our curses and paper bags  2013 and be in search of such that you might once have bought at Monk's you are invited to call in at my stall in Spitalfields Antiques Market which stands solemnly and staunchly in memory of Monk and others on Thursdays only between the hours strict of 8am and 3pm and where I buy and sell Vintage Fishing Tackle for the Soul.  Thank-you.
