Enjoying some liquid refreshment at the Lord Nelson pub in Reedham with landlord Sydney Mutton in 1955. Ian Hunt wrote to tell me: “I lived next door but one to the Nelson and was often sent there to get my Dad, Jack Hunt, the River Inspector, for his meal! I can't remember when Sid (as he was known by all) retired but the pub was taken over by John and Joan Findlay who converted the garage where Sid kept his beer and his station wagon to another bar.”
