Smith's field
Behind the Three Horseshoes pub

Local cows, but not in this location

How it looks today

The fields behind this little pub
Were owned by Farmer Smith
And here he kept his dairy cows
And worked his daily shift.
Up by dawn, to bed at dusk,
Get the cows milked, thatís a must,
Hard the life, but good the prize
As seen through healthy Heathen eyes.

OAP's today remember the field of cows and some even remember helping to milk them. The fields here were farmed by 'Civil John' Smith, as he was known, and this area was also his orchard. Stan Smith, his son, later took over from his father. The recreation ground was once pasture land for his cows.
