Top of Ivy brow, does any one know the last time beer was served here?. It is now a private residence, about the seventies it was John Gaffneys builders office.

I was born in this house in October 1959. We lived in the flat next to Gaffney's Offices. I lived there till we moved out 5 days before my 5th birthday.
