Heritage open days HODs_Box_ARTWORK_a4

As part of Heritage Open days 2016, I’m leading a Pub Heritage Walk on Friday 9th.September. This short tour will take in some of the entries in the CAMRA ‘Yorkshire’s Real Heritage Pubs’ book (copies will be available for purchase). Also included are a number of ‘try also’ pubs which include aspects of architectural merit.


We will commence at ‘Fagans’ and proceed to the ‘Dog and Partridge’ via a short stop outside the ‘Grapes.’ After a short refreshment break, we will proceed past the ‘Red Deer’ and ‘Bloo88,’ before completing the walk at ‘The Bath Hotel.’


En route we will pass: ‘Stanch,’ (the statue of a Pointer dog), the building with three different date stones, and the then home of the company whose claim to fame is that the owner was the first man to climb Nelson’s Column. There will also be Victorian tilework, terrazzo flooring, art deco glasswork, a mention of both long-gone Sheffield Breweries, Samuel Plimsoll and much more ….

The walk will take place twice: 14:00 and 17:30. Places are limited (to 15) and may be booked via Eventbrite:

14:00 start: http://tinyurl.com/jh3ogzz

17:30 start: http://tinyurl.com/jgqfa2r

Participants who wish to sample the beer served at the various en route stops are recommended to use public transport.

If you can’t wait until September, you could try the e-book, ‘History of Worksop and Retford Brewery’  http://tinyurl.com/j4d34ow
