circa 1950, once a year they had a rook shoot in the castle, the men from around would meet in the square with an assortment of guns, rifles,shotguns,relics from both wars, all sorts of armoury, two of us young boys would be allotted to one gun, however many he shot we had to get the birds and then cut off their legs,the men would then take the legs to "Ottoways" shop at the top of the hill, and he would give them a cartridge for each pair of legs he handed in.
