Plough Inn

The Plough was situated on Plough Hill.
I was going through my history and my time as a camp-kid at RAF Coningsby. In the early fifties when I was five I was in Nocton Hall RAF hospital to have my tonsils removed.
Then today going through the sites and seeing what has become of the area of the hospital I noticed the Potterhanworth Booths Road. So I followed it on Google Maps and this led me to another connection. That was the Plough Inn, now closed down. On a trip back to Lincolnshire fishing in 1967. I was in Bardney a popular spot for Sheffielders at the time. I was with a friend having a pint in the Nags Head at lunch time and got talking to some local girls. One of the girls was Janet Haig whose parents were the owners of the Plough Inn at Potterhanworth. I always wondered over the years what became of Janet as she was wearing one of those large charity badges that were popular then, "I'm a shelter Helper". Funny what sticks in your mind!
