Blunham Pubs

By Bill Exley

 

The Idea : of tracing the Blunham Pubs and Beerhouse histories, came about by interesting conversations with an old Blunham gent called Ernest Jeffries. We used to walk slowly up The Hill, due to his advanced years, and he would point out the old sites to me with his walking stick and nostalgic comments. I then wanted to compile a comprehensive listing of these sites using Bedford Archive and Records held at County Hall, (Now re named Bedfordshire Archive Service - 30/8/2022 ) - with visits to Charles Wells, Brewers of Bedford and Greene King Brewers, at Biggleswade, later to be demolished in 1997.
