Re: Billy Wedlock

For some years after WWII Billy 'Fatty' Wedlock was the landlord of 'The Star' in Ashton Road, practically opposite the main entrance of the Bristol City's home ground.

A few years ago the name of 'The Star' was changed to 'Wedlock's'. The pub was closed a couple of years ago. According to the Supporters website he was associated with the pub for 43 years.

Fred Wedlock, the Bristol folksinger, is a grandson of Billy Wedlock.

Have you tried putting 'Wedlock Bristol' in Google?
