Will this notorious past pub be featured?
This talk and local history walk starts inside Emsworth Museum promptly at 2.30pm.
Dr Margaret Rogers will give details of the locations of a least 23 Public Houses and numerous beer houses that have thrived at sometime in the town. She will also discuss the origins and importance of inn signs.
This will be followed by a short walk to The Square where gingerbread was sold in the town market and then onto the Quay to learn about the history of the local oyster fishing industry and the reason for its demise.
The cost of this talk and walk is £3.00 per person. Advance booking is not required. The
number of walkers will be limited 20.
