The majority of pubs have now reopened after the latest lockdown, albeit still with restrictions. Many pubs currently have temporary trading hours; these are shown where known. We also show pubs we know have still not reopened as temporarily closed.

Please note that due to the pandemic currently being allowed to run out of control, many pubs are having to close temporarily due to staff or customers getting "pinged". Please check with the pubs if you plan to travel any distance.

19 (or 17 or 29?) Fore Hamlet

grid reference TM 171 440

This was a long standing, low lodging house and beer shop described as "often the resort of tramps, destitutes and other down and outs." In 1841 a newspaper report referred to it as "in so bad condition from imperfect ventilation, uncleanness and the number of persons congregated in [it] that [it was] detrimental to the health of the public." The lodgings comprised two day rooms and six bedrooms and twenty four beds - up to 43 lodgers.

In 1869 it was also listed at 29 Fore Hamlet.

It has since been demolished.
