Hello Warminster, When I was 18 years old back in that horrible winter of 1963, I used to live for a while with my aunt and uncle, Norah and Pat Kelly, who ran The Weymouth Arms in Warminster. At that time they were also involved in the running of another pub in Warminster called The Globe or Old Globe. I used to walk there every day open the pub up, set the coal fire going, do any cellar work required etc and serve all of the smashing old codgers with their cider, by this time the fire was nice and hot and so was the poker that they used to mull their pints with. As you may imagine I have very fond memories of this old pub and have tried to find it on the net no luck, no luck that is until today when I found a pub called The Snooty Fox, this place looks like how I remember the globe and would dearly love to think that I have found it!. Can somebody help put me out of my misery please?... tedcole@blueyonder.co.uk Thank you Folks, Ted.

    Hello Ted - thanks for your message - I enjoyed reading about your time in Warminster. I haven't lived here very long so can't answer your questions but I am sure there will be many who can - looking forward to following the story.

    The Snooty Fox was the Globe, until somebody decided it was'nt a posh enough name for what they wanted to turn it into, a posh eatery..
