I am currently doing some research on the Aberfeldy estate and its pubs. My name is Liz and I run a little pub on the Aberfeldy with my friend Nick. It is only a small pub in an old shop but we are currently trying to get a new premises when the regeneration is finished on the estate. Our pub which was originally opened by a man called Gary hunter and is now run by us is named after Tommy Flowers who was born locally on Abbotts Road and who created the colossus computers which effectively helped win us the war ***
