What was the pub called just further along, it got named The Yard. We had this conversation in pub and no one could recall the original name. Thanks

That pic looks so different to now ,made me smile to see the dog crossing the road on its own. Something we don't see now very often (which is a good thing) dogs were everywhere and no-one took any notice. They seemed to be a lot better behaved then though....

Wasn't that called the Hinderton Arms as well?

The Golden Fleece aka Josie Ryans was also Dunnars at some point.
