History of 25 Brookfields

Jessie Ayres lived for most of her life at 23 Brookfields. She had been born in the Brookfield Tavern in 1898 and moved next door when she married.

Her grandparents kept the Brookfield Tavern. Jessie remembered a dancing bear outside the pub. She also recalled how on a Friday afternoon the women would wait outside the pub for the men to come down from the cement works so that they could take their wages off them before they went in the pub.
