The Stephensons

After many decades of serving the local population, The Fox & Crane closed on 15th January 2008. The photographs below have been taken since March 2008. The building looks sad and lifeless - with a steel fence keeping all customers and most intruders out. Here is The Fox & Crane on a beautiful sunny day. A local firm plans to adapt the building for homes. A shiny sign went up in February 2009, outlining what would be built and the Estate Agents responsible.

John Brookes has created a very informative site on The Fox & Crane. It has a lot of material on the past as well as plans for the future.
