From an email received 2 April 2018.

My uncle Charles Watts lived in the "Walnut Tree" pub Loose with my mother (his sister) after their parents died. My grandparents (who I never met as they died quite young) owned the pub before my uncle took it over after their deaths. My uncle then married and ran the pub with his wife Dorothy until their retirement.

My mother and I played in the "Walnut Tree" Ladies Dart Team for many years and won The Bossom Cup. I spent many happy years visiting them regularly in their pub and helped behind the bar.

In those days I remember there being a snug, spit and sawdust and 'posh' bar. Darts being played in the 'back room' where there was also a piano for music evenings.

I hope this helps.

Local knowledge, further pictures, and licensee information would be appreciated.

I will be adding the historical information when I find or are sent it, but this project is a very big one, and I do not know when or where the information will come from.

All emails are answered.
