GUEST,Henry Piper of Ottery Folklore: thatcher's language (roofing) (53* d) RE: Folklore: thatcher's language (roofing) 10 Jul 17

P.F.R, for many years the local(ish) cider obtainable in most pubs near here was Taunton Natural Dry,...Known as "Natch" O.K in its way, but not the best. One evening in the late 60's. I was in a pub in Stoke Fleming in the South Hams, During the evening an elderly lady came in wheeling a pram containing a small wooden barrel the landlord offloaded the barrel, stowing it behind the bar covering it with a towel, and gave the old girl a £5 note and 100 fags !! apparently this was a regular weekly order, and was never offered to tourist and non locals, but kept for regulars, the Landlord told us it was called "Mrs Wades Water" !!
