If you need sustenance after visiting the 10 Squadron War Memorial, do give 'The Plough Inn' at Allerthorpe a visit. It's just off the main York - Hull Road (A 1079) near Barmby Moor. Good food, pleasant company and very reasonable prices.
Harriet & Dan will make you feel most welcome. Even if you are not an Association Member do tell them why you are visiting the area. They will then point out the many framed Squadron photos, some of which came from the 10 Squadron Lounge in the 'Bombers' pub at Seaton Ross after its closure in 1998.
It is here at the Plough Inn that the 10 Sqn Association holds its annual lunch, following the Remembrance Day Service at the Melbourne Memorial. On this occasion, due to the high demand for seats, prior booking is necessary.
Contact the pub direct ( Tel: 01759 - 302349) by late September if you wish to book places at the lunch and NOT the Assoc Secretary, as in previous years.
It goes without saying that of course all are welcome to attend the Remembrance Service at the Memorial, without prior notification.
A more detailed Google Map showing the Plough Inn's location may be found in the article entitled The 10 Squadron War Memorial (above)
