DID YOU KNOW ?
That the Coconut Shy is said to have originated at the annual Pleasure Fair in Kingston Upon Thames in 1867 , that event took place on the town's Fairfield, not far from a Coconut Fibre Mill on the Hogsmill river. The Surrey Comet reported how "for the small sum of one penny, you could have three throws with sticks with the prospect of getting a Cocoa Nut...". The Coconuts could have come from nearby Middle Mill that advertised in the Surrey Comet as "The Patent Cocoa Fibre Co Ltd , the only Cocoa Nut Fibre Manufactory in Surrey. Today the only reminder of Kingston's association with coconuts is a pub in Mill Street, which was the principal route between Fairfield and Middle Mill for several centuries. Called "The Cocoanut", it is not only spelled the old way but is furthermore the only pub in Britain with that name.
