And look your last at The Globe……

Osnaburgh 7


I don’t know if this building will still be there when I publish this post as it is due to be re-developed.  The licensed premises actually started out with a different name and a different location!

According to Ken Clarke’s invaluable book it was a small establishment that catered for ‘tradesmen and the labouring class’ built around 1860.  It had no rooms to let and no stabling for horses.  Originally it was in The Avenue where the Jehovah’s Witnesses now have a hall.  It moved to this building in 1938 (which I think was specially built) .  It has changed names several times too – from The Globe (originally) to The Sportsman (1981), then Bridgers (1983) and then The Dolphin (1996).  Before it closed it was trading as a restaurant.
