In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

Some of them may well still be offering a takeaway beer service and some others will also be selling food takeaways, perhaps even with delivery. If you can give any of our pubs some support through these terrible times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support of possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

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 (larger map. The building at this location now appears too modern to have been the pub, so we assume the pub's been demolished.
