“A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. 31 A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. 32 So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. 33 But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. 34 He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn”
On a very short walk recently along Thames I stumbled upon the Inn and I was sure it was the right place for a swift recovery.
Don’t mind the little details such as the car, and electric lights and any others you may see; I tell you, it is the same place; different times though…
(Built in 1781, the Ship is without doubt most famous for its location on the finishing line of the Oxford/Cambridge Boat Race. Located at the end of Ship Lane off the Lower Richmond Road in Mortlake, to the rear of the Budweiser Brewery, the Ship is set back off the river. With all the hallmarks of a traditional English pub- an open fire, timber floor and beer garden – we are one of the most picturesque and inviting pubs along the river.)
