Ephram Hussey in the 1950's - he lived with his sister Mabel at Shadrach and worked at The Mere.
Douglas Northover wrote a short poem about this village character:
"He wore a blue jersey and a funny old cap
And thought that old Burton it covered the map
He worked for White Sisters above Burton Mere
Although he was addicted to 'baccy and beer.
At night in the corner of Harold's old 'Shoes'
He'd tell you a yarn which would banish your blues
Full of dry humour and salt spicy wit
Which would make you all laugh 'till your trousers did split.
With a face like a gargoyle and sun crinkled eyes
His black pipe a-puffing Eph. looked very wise
You couldn't tell when he was pulling your legs
As he drained down his pint to the very last dregs."
