Not much to do with pubs !. Looking at a picture of the Rake reminds me of the places that my grandfather used to go to work when he was among other things an Agricultural contractor.
In his work books there are names of farms off Eastham rake that are no longer there !.
Lowfields Farm is one i can remember, wonder if the farm was where the Rake Pub
is today ?. there where also a couple of farms down as being on Plymyard Avenue.
All well before my time though.
