Quiet Woman

Picture source: Hania Franek

The Quiet Woman was situated off the B5053. This pub is reputedly over 400 years old with the Heathcote family running it for 300 of them. Joseph Heathcote was certainly there as an innkeeper at the time of his death in 1811. The last Heathcote there was probably his great grandson Herbert Heathcote who was there until the 1920s. The last publican was Ken Mellor who sadly died in August 2020. The pub died with him.
