Days Gone By: Memories from The Falcon in Rushmere St Andrew from 1974
This picture gallery from The Rushmere St Andrew Falcon will evoke fond memories for many from 1974 .
Situated in a busy country lane and connected to a small row of cottages, The Falcon pub stood proudly and was once the hive of activity.
The pub punctuated Playford Road and was the local for those living in Rushmere St Andrew.
Opened just before 1838, it was attached to a house that contained a cellar, parlour, club room, kitchen, bar, wash house, and five bedrooms.
There was even a small garden that included a cart shed and piggeries.

The pub closed it doors to the public for the final time in 2011 and was converted to residential use.
