A dedicated landlord who lived from cradle to grave at the same pub has had his dying wish granted by regulars who had his ashes buried at the bar.
Jack Woodward was born in the Boat Inn, Stoke Bruerne, near Towcester, Northants, and lived there until three weeks before his death aged 83. Now his remains lie beneath a flagstone with a plaque reading, “Stand here and have a drink on me. Jack 1924 – 2008.”
