The majority of pubs have now reopened after the latest lockdown, albeit still with restrictions. Many pubs currently have temporary trading hours; these are shown where known. We also show pubs we know have still not reopened as temporarily closed.

Please note that due to the pandemic currently being allowed to run out of control, many pubs are having to close temporarily due to staff or customers getting "pinged". Please check with the pubs if you plan to travel any distance.

Offton Rd

grid reference TM 064 477 (approximate location)

The 1861 Census locates this pub at Novia Scotia. An 1885 map locates Novia Scotia farm on Offton Road, called Bushey Ley Farm on the current OS map.

The 1886 OS map shows a (now gone) building close to our map location called "Hole in the Wall" - a clue?

Abraham Farthing is mentioned in an 1859 newspaper report placing him in nearby Lindsey.
