The Globe - History
15th-century pub with a garden and terrace on the banks of a small lake, plus Modern British menu. One landlord of the Globe who held a special place in the towns cricket history was Thomas Taylor. He was one of the Hambledon Club team who, on l8th June 1777, beat All England by an innings and 168 runs (the other Alresford man in the team was Richard Veck). Among the entertainments at the Globe was the Melon Feast; the fruit being judged for perfection before becoming the principal dish.
On the 26 September 1943 the B17 Flying Fortress “Lady Luck”, carrying a full bomb load, got into difficulties over Alresford. Captain Robert Cogswell ordered his nine crewmen to bail out remaining on board the aircraft himself in an attempt to steer the bomber away from the town. The plane crashed just east of Alresford Pond Captain Cogswell having jumped to safety himself shortly before it crashed.
The plaque in Soke Gardens honours Captain Cogswell of the 303 Bomb Group, US 8th Air Force and his conduct in saving Alresford from a potential disaster.
Soke Gardens can be found down the lane to the right of the Globe on the Lake pub at the bottom of Broad Street.
