Moncks Arms

The Moncks Arms was situated at Caenby Corner. This pub closed during the 1980s. Publican in 1919 was Earld Toyne.
 
My aunt and uncle had The Moncks Arms during the War years, when it was very much a meeting place and watering hold for RAF personnel. My parents met there as my Father was stationed at RAF Hemswell. They married when he returned from the war. I was born at RAF Hemswell.
My Son and I took my Mother and Uncle there in the 1980s or 90s. They were sad to see how dilapidated it looked. My Mother reminisced about how pristine it was when she worked for my aunt, her sister: silver service restaurant, she said, and immaculate bedrooms. The public and lounge bars gleamed and were kept highly polished.
