Definition funny of Lechlade:

urbanThe head of navigation of the River Thames, and about four miles from Fairford. A really cool place to grow up in, and learn how to drink beer. We had a motorcycle race circuit from Cox's Service Station where I used to work, down the High Street, around the bend by the church, right into Sherborne Street and back to Cox's. In the summer, we drank beer by the side of the River Thames. In the winter we drank beer or cider in the Swan Inn, and sometimes in the Red Lion. Incidently, the landlord of the Red Lion at the time was one Douggie Wainright, who later in life got shot dead by Michael Ryan in the Hungerford Massacre.

urbanWe went to Lechlade the other day to drink some beer. Ces puked up all over the Red Lion carpet while Raz poured his beer over the landlords shoes.
