Establishment Comments
"The Silent Woman" Once a smugglers haunt, legend has it that an "unusual" Landlady (one who talked too much, heaven forbid!) gave away the smugglers' secrets in Wareham market place. Fearful of capture by the ever-present Excise Men, the smugglers silenced her by cutting out her tongue, thus creating that unique phenomenon "The Silent Woman".
