The pub scene in Wickham Market

May 12, 2018

Did you know there were seven pubs in Wickham Market!! That was in 1910 when there were 1,417 people living here. The George is the last which is why so many people are trying to save it - pubs are good for a village...

 

Can you remember some of these - it will depend on your age!! Some of these dates may change again, when more research is done.

 

The Chequers - opened pre 1740 and closed 1999

The White Hart -  opened pre 1504 and closed 1985

The Crown - opened pre 1652 and closed April 1959

The Grapes/Vine - opened pre 1844 after 1955

The Volunteer - opened pre 1872 and closed 1969

The Blue Boar pre 1652 - ?

The Chaise and Pair (probably known as The Cross from pre 1742 until 1792): pre 1792 - August 1911.

 

Today, Saturday 12th May at midday you can make a difference by coming along to the market hill for a photo - we need people showing their support for the pub rebuilding project.
