The pub changed hands

In by Carew Arms

The Inn was for a number of years run by the Lock Family; Mrs Lock ran the pub with her son Cyril, Cyril was a bit of a character, who left most of the work to his mother whilst he did his bit of farming. One story told about Cyril was that he would drive his Hay cart down from the fields at Harvest time and unbeknown to him other harvesters would attach to the bottom of the cart all the dead rats, killed during the cause of the harvesting of the hay. Cyril would be seen driving quickly along looking for the source of the noise as the rats dangled beneath hitting the floor of the wagon and then the road. It was a sight of great amusement to all the villagers!
