White Hart

Picture source: John Coombs

The White Hart was situated on North Road and closed in the 1960s. My Great Grandfather was the Landlord of this pub in around 1918. My Grandfather lived opposite until 1967.

The little joker in the middle of the front row with the pipe is Fred Bidwell, licensee, his son (also Fred) once told me his nickname was the ‘Chinaman’, I suppose in a bad light he could have been assumed to be of oriental persuasion. He lived opposite the “Hart” until his demise which was during my tenancy, probably around 1970, His two sons used to visit him frequently and often came in to the pub for a drink.
