Clare Oak

Clare Oak

also traded as Royal Oak

Closed approx 1958?

Chilton Rd

grid reference TL 769 463

This is shown as a pub (the Oak) on OS maps at least as late as 1958, but not on the 1959 or subsequent sheets, so must have closed about this time.

Beerhouse The Oak is listed in the 1881 census at 11 Chapel Road.

The Royal Oak is listed in Chapel Street in 1891 and Snow Hill in 1901.

It's shown on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. interactive map
