The Pub History Society
Who are we and what do we do
The Society was initiated in February 2001 to help bring together like minded individuals who enjoy some aspect of pub history. Many of our members have written books and articles about the history of pubs, others are just enthusiasts who enjoy nothing more than visiting unspoilt or historic pubs....

A unique collection of photos accumulated over many years and available for the first time in this downloadable publication.
30 pubs are featured in this first volume with many more to follow. Nottingham's Lost Pubs is a journey through time utilising a 'then and now' theme illustrating how quickly our pub landscape changes.
The publication is a tribute to Derek's late friend Brian Hayes who, between them embarked upon a city wide pub crawl in the 1950's recording what they saw as they went.
