Although the government has now allowed pubs to reopen, many are still unable to do so safely, while most if not all are only able to accommodate limited numbers of customers. Many of them are still reliant on providing takeaway food and/or drinks. Some offer deliveries, while others are selling from the premises. This page lists details of those we know about.

Update: pubs which are known to have reopened are now also listed. Please let Tony know if you know of pubs not listed that have reopened.

The small holdings were run as a co-operative, but like other similar communities it eventually failed when the men complained of the long hours, low pay and the isolation of rural life. Recruitment to the scheme ceased at the outbreak of World World War II. The settlements were dissolved and privatised in 1983.
