The Chequers Inn, 1980s

The Chequers Inn, formally the Hurst, on Loughborough Road in Quorn, used to be a lively venue in the 1980s. These photographs of the landlord and landlady, Gordon & Rose Underwood, were contributed by Brian Shuttlewood, who used to do a show there every Friday night. Brian (aka 'the Big Bopper'!) remembers that Gordon was a Sgt Pilot in WW11 and trained in Canada before joining a Lancaster squadron. After leaving the Chequers he opened a café by the railway bridge in Barrow on Soar and from there moved to the Quorn Conservative Club.
