Jessie Wiffen died in 1952. Since the war the pub had been run by her daughter Vera Olive Piggott (nee wiffen) and her husband Howard Charles Piggott.
1952 also saw the arrival of their son, Kenneth Howard Piggott (me). The Piggotts retired and left the pub in 1981 (give or take a year) after which the brewery put in a manager instead of another tenant. Vera is now 93. *
