On the opposite side of the road were once famous tea gardens which even by 1921 were derelict.

Thiswas the site for Ditton Walk’s Victory celebrations in 1918. A Sergeant Cash lent the marquee, cutlery and all things for the victory celebration.

‘Memories of Abbey and East Barnwell’:The Globe pub, which had been a popular local, became a problem during the 1980s as supporters gathered there, and this inevitably led to ‘trouble’ on match days. Eventually the pub was forced to stop trading on match days, which of course, damaged their trade, and finally it closed.
