From the South Wales Argus, a Newport couple recently celebrated their diamond wedding anniversary. Eric and Sheila Read used to work for Ansells and ran the Castle Hotel, the Six Bells, Three Horseshoes and Victoria on Nash Road.
And a photograph from the 1970s of Eric Read and comedian Dick Emery in the Six Bells in Newport.
Their first pub was the Castle Hotel, pictured above from the railway bridge. The pub was directly opposite the castle and was demolished for the Old Green Crossing to be built.
