hi folks...well at last i have had the time to repost the pics of all the pubs that were on the lane:):)the red lion that was on the corner of bridge st west and summer lane was demolished in the early 1920s and so far a pic of this pub has never been found...the police station now stands on the ground where it was...

there only only 3 of these pubs still standing...the royal george..the barrel and the stags head.....the george and the barrel have been close for a few years now with no sign of them reopening.....this leaves the stags head which is the only pub down summer lane still pulling pints...

first the map pinpointing where the pubs were situated...

Fabulous collection there Lyn. Pity about one missing, but give it time. Someone whos probably not even a member yet is out there with just that picture. Great result for a lot of work.
