Who was Billy Green?

Ham and eggs at Billy Green's!

The Inn is often referred to as "Billy Green's", but who was Billy Green? Well he was the husband of Mrs (Ma) Green, who was the real driving force behind the Inn. A Justice of the Peace, Governor of Penistone Grammar School and an Oxford Graduate, she also managed to maintain a steady supply of ham and eggs to Langsett visitors during the Second World War, who would come in droves to walk around the reservoir, then to the Inn to enjoy the rare treat of ham (from the Green's stock of pigs) and fresh eggs. Billy Green was also famous as a breeder of Shire horses, some pictures (of him?) can be seen in our long room.
