Thanks Ron, this pic brings many different memories, having a cool drink in the pub, playing cricket behind the pub, my mother and niece are in the Church Yard,, the last time I saw my father was in the funeral arrangers through the arch behind the van, also when I was a kid through the arch taking my grandfathers pony to be shod at the Blacksmiths. So much history for me in this one small picture. THANKS.
