Overview | Historical info | Public transport | Map

Census locations suggest that the Race Horse (1861), the Blacksmith's Arms (by 1881) and the Victoria Arms (by 1891) may all be the same pub. If you can confirm or refute this, please let us know.

The map location is based on what's now 23 Ingate, on the assumption that the numbering scheme is unchanged. The building now at number 23 cannot be the original pub building as it sits back from the line of houses, which was not the case on the OS map of the end of the 19th century.

It evidently closed between June 18th and 24th 1907 as on the former date it's listed as for sale as the Victoria Arms, but on the latter as "formerly known as the Victoria".
