5 August


On 5 August 2010, after nearly a year, a few false dawns and numerous rumours the Bush reopened its doors. It had been closed following a fire which caused significant damage. New owners Liz and Andy invited visitors in for a drink to celebrate and to view the newly renovated pub.  Click here to see photographs of the opening night.
From documents and conversations with villagers we can track back the history of our historic inn to previous owners and tenants (and its locals!). Check out the story of the Bush here ….and if you have any interesting tit bits to add – we would love to hear from you!
There is a whole section on the website devoted to memories of the village – click here to see the full current list of 46 articles. Please get in touch if there are any memories that you would like to add.
