UK pub history and historical Street directory

The pub history sites are regularly updated by Stephen Harris and kevan, plus an 'open' group of like-minded individuals on a daily basis; and anyone is welcome to contribute. We are not a society, but a random group of people with similar interests in mapping the usage of old buildings, public houses, taverns, hotels and Inns through time. Why not join us, there is no cost in getting involved, and any contribution to pub history is welcome.

To contact the pubs history site, please email deadpubs

Here is a local search of the pub history site, including the 70,000+ web pages & 10,000+ images.


Onley Saville Onley

Onley Saville Onley appears to have been a major benefactor to the village of Stisted in the 19th century. He built the Onley Arms, houses, the school and headmaster's house, partially rebuilt the church and generally alleviated any suffering within Stisted. His residence, Stisted Hall, became an old peoples home in the late 20th century. He'd probably approve.
