A pub landlord who lived all his life in the same pub has had his ashes buried at the bar. Jack Woodward was born in the Boat Inn near Towcester in 1924 and lived there all his life until he died aged 83. In his will he said that he wanted the bar to be his final resting place. His remains now lie under a flagstone with a plaque reading "Stand here and have a drink on me. Jack 1924 – 2008."
