Maybe Catters (of a certain age!)in the North Midlands can help me with some info.
I don't think I have dreamed it but I know in my old bones that I have seen a pub in the Derbyshire Peak district called 'the Shannon and Chesapeake'. I don't think it exists any longer, having been renamed. I dont know where it was but I'm sure I've seen it, possibly 20 years ago.
Any outdoor and drinking types familiar with the area may be able to confirm my belief (or not!).
Please help put this old codger out of his misery.

Regards

Andy

I don't know about the Peak District, but there's definitely a "Shannon and Chesapeake" in Todmorden, West Yorkshire. It's definitely up in the Pennines.

Maybe this reference is related:

"When the USS Chesapeake was captured by the HMS Shannon, in June 1813, outside Boston Harbor, the Shannon's captain knew good booty when he saw it. Besides, no self-respecting sea captain of that era would allow the long oak timbers of a heavy frigate to sink to the bottom.

That's how they ended up being built into The Chesapeake Mill in Wickham."

The Chesapeake Mill is still in business, albeit not milling. A full history here

Phil-

That's a very nice and detailed description of the battle and the mill itself.

Sounds like a place that needs some sea shanties sung. (Although shanties weren't sung in the RN. Were they sung in the USN?)

No, shanties were not officially sung in the USN either.
