The Gate



The Gate was situated on The Street.
I was born in 1944 in a house ("Beck View”) twenty yards from "The Gate” pub Starston which became a Post Office and General store sometime in the early fifties so probably one of the first to suffer the fate of "progress". It had a sign, in the shape of a five bar gate, above the door which I thought made the small pub special. It read “This gate hangs high and hinders none so drink and pay and pass along”. I don’t know how many of the current villagers would know about this but it was, to me, a sign that was from a different time and made The Gate something of a local treasure.
