The Angel

 


 
The Angel was situated on Ermine Street. This pub has now been demolished with Angel Court built on the site.
 
The farm, which also served as a pub, was called The Angel Hotel. This grandly titled edifice stood three stories high on Ermine street in the centre of the village. My aunt opened the bar at lunchtime and evenings and my uncle farmed the ajoining land. Indoor conditions were promative, although it had the title of a hotel, the building had just one inside water tap in a stone flagged passageway and no interior toilets. All water for cooking, washing and such had to be carried from this tap in enamel buckets. Outside, the extensive yards were ringed with barns and lean-to's for the animals and machinery. electricity was limited to the house and so for going out at night to attend the stock or to visit the privy a selection of hurricane lamps lined a shelf in the kitchen.
