Sugwas Boat
« on: Tuesday 07 February 17 11:09 GMT (UK) »
My parents often spoke about times spent at the Sugwas Boat (Inn?) in the mid 1930's, and of its characterful landlady.
On a visit to Hereford ( my birthplace) a few years ago I tried to find The Sugwas Boat but couldn't and nobody I asked in Sugwas had heard of it.
Does anybody know anything about it? Does it still exist under a different name?

There are mid-nineteenth century newspaper references to it being in the parish of Eaton Bishop.

The ferry crossed the river from sugwas to Easton bishop, I cannot see a pub marked on the 1930 map on the south side of the river, so the boat inn at sugwas might still be a possibility.

It seems probable that The Boat at Sugwas might have been known to Hereford Rowing Club (where my parents met) as The Sugwas Boat to distinguish it from another Boat Inn elsewhere on the river. Thank you all for your help.
