Weston Duke of Marlborough

Weston Duke of Marlborough

Closed Late 1930s.

London Rd

grid reference TM 424 876

The Duke of Marlborough is listed in the 1910 Redisham Rates book, but later annotated "de-licensed". So must have closed some time soon after 1937 (the last listed licensee) as that rates book was only in use up to the late-1930s.

The pub is shown here on an old OS map from about the end of the 19th century (interactive map. The building at this location now appears too modern to have been the pub, so we assume the pub's been demolished.
