News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

I remember Shukers very well around 1977 I was friends with John Merrett who's dad Bob had Cossington Farm down Bell Lane. If I stayed over on a weekend we always used to go to Shukers Shop for a "Penneth" of sweets and Mr Merrett would buy his rolling tobacco. I remember the bird but thought it was a Mynah bird ????

Shukers farm cafe

Not sure which area it  comes under, Shukers farm/cafe, in the late sixties Shukers cafe was the place to visit when on motor cycles, just along from motorway bridge Walderslade, it was then a running farm and cafe, but now it is derelict, has been for many years.  If any one remembers old man Shuker  he had a parrot that would take sweets out of a glass jar and then give to the customer ...some killjoy  reported this to the health authority and "polly" was banned.  I pass the buildings a lot, and it now is a total wreck.  Is there any family I wonder?...  any knowledge?
