1986 Places in Shurlock Row

   There is a pond in Shurlock Row     
 which has its own  Swan and Moorhen . 
 It is a boggy pond with many  Willows 
 around it.  The pond is cared for by  
 local residents who have planted lots 
 of flowers around the pond and keep   
 the borders carefully cut.            
                                       
   The Royal Oak is one of the village 
 pubs.  It has two bars, one of which  
 is a games room, and a place outside  
 to play Aunt Sally. The pub is named  
 after the large oak tree opposite     
 to commemorate the time when King     
 Charles hid in a similar tree.        
                                       
   Great Martins is a large house which
 used to be part of the Shurlock Row   
 Brewery which is now closed.  It has a
 Cricket ground at the back which was  
 used by the local cricket club until  
 1984.
