Recent view of the building
The Mother Red Cap was a familar pub to many locals. Its pub sign with a large nosed old crone in a red cap is still remembered to this day. When the M40 was
being built, cutting it off during construction from Wooburn Moor below, its days were numbered. It was also subject to the change in the junction here -
the pub mysteriously appearing to move from one side of the junction to the other due to the new road layout. Happily The Falcon, probably once its main competitor,
still remains in operation (- just outside of our map).
