Faded memories


This was a surprise! Walking along Maguire Drive my eye was caught by a small sign on a fence in one of the front gardens. That made me pause and take a longer look at the contents of the garden which included the heavily faded sign for the much-missed Crooked Billet pub in Ham Street.

I went to the pub a couple of times when I lived down south (Kings Road) and went looking for it again when I moved to Ham in '96. I got horribly confused before realising that the pub had been replaced by houses. It's good to have this sign to remember it by.
