Fetter Hill

Fetter Hill c 1956.

The George Inn is in the centre of the photo with the Parkend to Coleford railway line running along the bank behind it.

Peter added: "... my house was the one nearest to camera and my father was Sid Jones my mother Ethel Jones and my sister Ruth. The pub was owned by George Barnet with his wife. Next to pub was Charlie Blanch with wife and two children, who emigrated to Tasmania, then there was the Farr's house, which later became Teddy Nelmes's house".

Mrs June Crook added (June 2009): "... Charlie Blanch, wife and children moved out in Feb 1954 and moved abroad. Mr and Mrs George Crook moved into Fetterhill House
in October 1954".

Frederick Cook added (February 2010): "... The George was, in fact run by Jim Barnard (not Barnet). I remember this because I visited the pub as a child with my parents and on a couple of occasions was fortunate enough to stay with them on holiday as guests of George and Pat Crook who lived next door at Fetterhill House. They were very hospitable hosts and, unfortunately, George Crook died at far too early an age. Many many years ago Mrs Barnard was recorded singing a song for Franklin Engelmann on the radio programme 'Down Your Way'".
