Much of the information on the Railway Inn was provided by Dave Milsom.  “My 3X great grandfather, William Milsom, operated the Masons Arms on Tyning Lane at least from 1839, possibly from 1836 to 1871. About 1867 - 68, he changed the name to the Railway Inn. About the same time, the street name was changed from Tyning Lane to Station Road. William died 9 May 1871 after falling down the cellar stairs at the pub. The Inn passed to his widowed daughter Sarah Smith Haskins. In 1873, she remarried, this time to Andrew Fidler, and the pub was then in his name. He died in 1893 and the pub returned to Sarah, now Sarah Fidler. About 1901, the pub was in Thomas Jakeways name (unrelated to the Milsoms as far as I know) It is still in business now as the Railway Tavern. I have been told that it was called Peckett’s Flyer in the 1980's but don't know that for sure but would like to know the approximate dates”.
