Rather interesting Colnbrook facts
Did you know that here in 1825 Richard Cox, a retired brewer, grew the first Cox's Apples in the orchard of his house on the Bath Road. Some of his original trees are still said to exist there.
Did you know that The Ostrich pub in Colnbrook is the third oldest pub in all England? King John stayed here on his way to seal Magna Carta in 1215 . It was established in 1106 by one Milo Crispin, and was originally named simply The Hospice (The Ostrich apparently a corruption of that name). Legend has it that a 17th century landlord, John Jarman, killed some 60 guests over a period of years, a hinged bed dropping them into instant death in a boiling cauldron.
