|Woodpecker Guest House||
The "Woodpecker Guest House," in Womenswold was originally the Vicarage.
It held full licence and was open to the public for the bar and restaurant.
Peter Wilberforce tells me he moved next door to The "Woodpeckers" in March 1969 when it was run by a family called Stuteley. They retired and sold to the Pearts, who had struggled to run the place and rapidly sold on to the Millards.
We left Womenswold in 1987 and the Millards were still in residence. Not sure when they left.
It is now a private house: we called there in 2010 hoping for a meal only to find it closed.
STUTELEY to 1969
MILLARDS to 1987+
