The Fox

By Norman Phillips

The Fox, another Fordham's pub, is in Station Road about halfway to the station,next to the Cinques cottages.It was built before 1840 and was flint faced. It closed in 1959 and is now a private dwelling.The front of the building has been plastered where the flints used to be.

My great grandfather Joseph Baulk was born in ‘The Sinks’ Ashwell, in June 1881, near to The Fox pub. His father William was a farm labourer, presumably at Redlands Farm. 

I‘d like to think he celebrated the arrival of his son with a pint or two in The Fox, it’s just a shame I can’t do the same.
