Barton Mills Dog & Partridgehistorical closure era: late 20th century
This was a thatch roofed pub. Sadly Alice Wesley 68 died in severe fire at pub (on Sun 25 Jan 1959). Her two brothers, John & Richard Tolworthy (both over 70) and her son, John Wesley together with his family escaped fire. The pub was very badly damaged in the fire. A report of fire was published in EADT on Mon 26 Jan 1959.
Not sure when pub was finally closed, but it was still open in early 1990s.
The pub can be seen here on an OS map of the 1890s. (larger map)
