In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.
A number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the Covid-19 lockdown. Some offer deliveries, while others are selling from the premises. This page lists details of those we know about.
If you can give any of our pubs some support through these terrible times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support of possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.
Clay Common was the location of brickworks that were active until the 1950s.
The village, whose name means "Frogs valley", was recorded in Domesday as "Froxedena". Locals pronounce the village name "Frozzenden".
Domesday also reported that sea-going ships moored here, however all that remains now of the river they sailed up is a dry ditch.
