A collector of pub checks, small metal tokens used mainly in Victorian times, contacted me in 2000 telling me that he had a pub check in his collection for ‘New Inn, Frampton. P.Price’. Unfortunately, he could find no trace of Mr Price in any trades directory to confirm that the pub check was for the New Inn at Frampton on Severn.
