Father Peter MacLeod-Miller and his friends toasted the Adamshurst bar for the last time yesterday.
Champagne in hand they farewelled the historic wooden bar and also warmed Father MacLeod-Miller’s new home in style.
Father MacLeod-Miller, who took possession of Adamshurst yesterday, said he would rather turn what used to be the bar room into his bedroom.
He said the bar would make a great addition to any home, just not his.
“It would be great for someone with lots of room and a few friends to lean on it,” Father MacLeod-Miller said.
“They would want to be hospitable and ready for some serious drinking.”
He suggested that the bar would be a great addition to a community-based group such as one of the region’s men’s sheds.
The long wood bar is up for grabs for anyone willing to make an offer.
“I need a couple of beds,” he said.
“That is something I would rather have in this room.”
Father MacLeod-Miller is excited about future prospects for Adamshurst.
However he said he had a lot of renovating to do at Adamshurst in the meantime.
