Description

Public houses, taverns and inns have been around for hundreds of years. From the inns that thrived on marketday trade to those on the old stage-coach routes, Huntingdonshire had a wide range of welcoming establishments and in 1900 had over 250 pubs, in addition to the numerous beer houses which were often run from the front rooms of ordinary houses. Labourers needed plenty of beer to keep them going - it was far safer to drink than the water! With images drawn from the Huntingdonshire Archives, the Norris Museum and private photographers, this book offers a captivating glimpse into the history of each pub. Many of them have now disappeared, some have been demolished to make way for new development and others have become private dwellings with no trace of their past remaining. The authors take you on a nostalgic tour of Huntingdonshire pubs.
