A Very Fine Pub - a Memory of Perrywood.

A very fine pub, that's if you can find it, in the middle of nowhere, deep inside Perry Wood. It's worth looking for. This used to be the Perry Wood winkle club in the 1960s and 1970s, where you would get your winkle out of your pocket before another club member did, the loser would have to get the drinks in first! No joke,  the landlord in the years I first went there was known as Mad John who collected sailors' hats which were displayed around the 2 bars. I sometimes sat in his garage repairing his daughter's motorcycle with the odd drink to keep me going!!
