Caulkheads and Old Bristol
Caulkheads and Old Bristol
Caulkhead is the nickname for an Isle of Wight native. Caulking is the act of sealing the planks of a ship with oakum and tar, ship repair and building being an important industry in the island's history. To the right is the Caulkheads Pub. On the left is a 1960 Bristol FS6G, a participant in the Isle of Wight Beer & Buses Weekend 2017 LinkExternal link . The Caulkheads Pub was the first stop of the day in Sandown; there were three seats and about 30 people wanting to get on. I remember going to school on Eastern National buses just like this one.
