On the boundary
Bull Hotel. Large roadhouse. Closed and derelict. It had become the Déjà Vu – 'for a drink, a fight and a slapper'. Amazing big sign outside with a cut-out bull on it – it had been ‘The Bull of Birchwood’
Birchwood Pub. Did this used to be called the Alma?
Coal post in the hedge at the junction with Ladenhatch Lane
