In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

Some of them may well still be offering a takeaway beer service and some others will also be selling food takeaways, perhaps even with delivery. 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.

The pub was built in 15th century, and later extended.

The village hall was built in 1909 as a men's reading room, to keep them away from the Swan, though it took nearly 60 years to keep enough away from it so that it closed.

It's shown on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. larger map
