The National Traction Engine Trust

The Carpenters Arms in Appleford where Arthur Napper first challenged Miles Chetwyn-Stapleton to a race, is up for sale. With mounting pressure on rural pubs it seems to be a strong possibility that it may close and be sold to a developer who is bound to make the most of the large garden at the rear, which could involve demolishing the pub.
