Does anybody know what year the present pub was built. I can remember them doing it as they built around the old White Swan. Probably the 50's.

looks like a good pub, never been in though.

I also remember the pub being built, Freda, and also looking down into the old pub as a child prior to this. I heard there was a pit found under the old pub or under the road where men would fight with clogs. Don't know how true this is. It was a good pub the last time I was in it around 1991.

By the way, both the old White Swan and the Church yesterday can be seen at: 'Street scenes - Lamberhead Green'.
