Sonnet Folklore: Odd pub names (412* d) RE: Folklore: Odd pub names 13 Sep 05

The Tommy Treddlehoyle near Barnsley celebrates a local character reputed to have ridden a donkey backwards from Pogmoor to Barnsley. The Postcard, Holmfirth, refers to Bamforth's who made saucy seaside postcards. Knocked down last year was The Bonny Bunch o' Roses,dating from the Napoleonic Wars, at Silkstone Common. Near Thurgoland is The Dog and Partridge, more commonly known as The Monkey. The Fat Cat is at Kelham Island in Sheffield and The Slubber's Arms (a weaving reference) is in Huddersfield.

Did there used to be a pub in Sheffield called The Wapentake?
