Thanks for posting the info and link! I visited Berwick upon Tweed just two weeks back. Gosh I wish I could have heard/seen that! The town was lovely and we had a great lunch there. Lord you English and Scots love you some potatoes! It works for me. Very delicious stuff. : )

Yes that's amazing that it's the original head. Would love to see a clip of it.
