The Wrestlers' Inn, Aldenham, becomes The Battle Axes

Several years ago Nancy asked about The Wrestlers' Inn at Aldenham, and Colin has just contacted me to say that another of his relatives, James Meager, was associated with the pub in Victorian times. I decided to find out what happened to it and discovered that it was demolished in about 1891 as part of improvements to the Aldenham Estate - and The Battle Axes public house was build as a replacement.
