It is Joan, when the present pub was being built, and before they demolished the old pub (the low white timbered building on the left).
If you look in the Lamberhead Green Album on here there are a few photos of both pubs.

I don't think it is. The pattern on the Gable end is different and the chimney is in a different position.

Ron try looking on Google Street View. The pattern of the timbering on the pub is identical to the old photo, as is the location of the windows and chimneys.
It is definitely the White Swan. Compare it to other photos on here.

White Swan, Pemberton. The old one (at the front) is well gone.

Would this be prior to where Pemberton Police Station was situated. It wasn’t far down from the White Swan. I seem to recollect a portion of spare land towards the side of the pub. Early sixties.

Bit late but his should help.


Best angle i could get but 100% the White Swan Pem.

I think people maybe trying to figure it from the main road view, but this angle is from White st near lawnmower shop.
