In the December 1889 edition of Harper's Magazine is the R.D. Blackmore tale in verse Buscombe: Or, A Michaelmas Goose. The illustration above from the magazine is instantly recognisable as the entrance to old Blundell's, shown below.

Last year, local author and publisher, Douglas Rice, published a new edition of the tale, as reported by In Your Area.
