Barry was a peacock who stalked around the terrace at The Trout Inn above the River Thames along with fellow peacock Norman. He would walk among the drinkers and take food, occasionally letting out a menacing scream. When Hannah Relf came to The Trout to talk to Malcolm Polstead, one of the peacocks eyed her sandwich. Later, Malcolm saw one of the peacocks drowned and draped over a bush on the terrace and both peacocks died in the flood. Another two peafowl named Norman and Barry later became part of the Trout.
