Yes, but we would still have 25% **** nutters who wouldn't think twice about stripping to the waist* in the stands in a mid winter blizzard to show the world that they love the Cobblers  Wink

My sister born 1970 in St Edmunds whereas myself 1967 and brother 1972 both born at Barratts. So did Barratts close for a period circa 1969-70?

I asked an old boy in the Crown and Cush about this, over the weekend. He said that if you wanted your own GP to oversee the birth, you could choose St Edmunds, whereas at the Barratt, it was whoever was available.
Or it could be vice-versa, he couldnt quite recall.

The Barratts pub hasn't been there forever believe it or not.
Anybody still go in there? Used to be a decent atmosphere post Sunday morning football. Lot of teams used to stop by. Games on the big screens very 1990s
