  1. My father ran this pub in the early 1930s his name was William Fredrick Griffiths he met my mother Kathleen Fogden at that time she lived locally .

    1. Hello Barbara I wondered if you know whether the frontage, being set back from the road, was used for outside seating in the 30’s and whether or not the pub sign and post existed then too? It would be very helpful to know.
