Harmonium Hero Unusual (and small) Venues (35) RE: Unusual (and small) Venues 26 Jan 16


Sorry Les - had to correct that one! - it was a stable, complete with stalls and mangers, and seats and tables made from some old church pews. The late Dave Boardman was resident for a while after Ian Woods packed it in, and then The Wakes for a year or so. Alt and Carol Alexander then ran it for what must have been abour thirty years, and it is now run by Grace Woods (ex-wife of the above-mentioned Ian). Sadly, the pub was taken over about fifteen years ago by one of these 'PubCos', who promptly evicted the club and others who used the stable block, and tarted the place up to cater for the yoof trade. Usual story. The Folk Club is now in the Conservative Club just down the road. Still going strong after 48 years.
