Although the government has now allowed pubs to reopen, many are still unable to do so safely, while most if not all are only able to accommodate limited numbers of customers. Many of them are still reliant on providing takeaway food and/or drinks. Some offer deliveries, while others are selling from the premises. This page lists details of those we know about.

If you can give any of our pubs some support through these difficult times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support as possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

Stowupland Millers' Arms

Stowupland Millers' Arms

Closed about 1872

opened before 1842

Thorney Green

grid reference TM 064 599 (approximate location)

This was a short-lived beerhouse located close to the windmill.

**Speculation:** the building in our photograph and at the map location is claimed by the Listed Building Register to be the original Retreat. However, the historical records (and photographs) show that this was closer to the current Retreat building and was demolished in 1969. So it seems possible that, assuming this building was a pub at some time as the register claims, it might have been the Millers' Arms.

If you have any information that might confirm or refute this suggestion, please let us know.
