Bartons Arms

Hi John,

I have just found a leaflet printed after the last refit of the pub in I think the 1980's. To add what you have out on the main site it says -

The Barton's Arms is one of the finest examples of a Victoria Pub to be found anywhere in the country. Built in1901, the pub was designed by local architects James and Lister Lea, who are thought to have found the
inspiration for the style of the building from the nearby Aston Hall. What is certain is they created an imposing outline which stands out distinctively
to this day.

With regard to finding out more about its history I wonder if Mitchells & Butlers or Bass who took them over has any archive material and photos
they would loan the site.
