The attached PDF document ( see link below) contains a summary of the following information that was collated while researching  24 of the public houses, beerhouses and hotels for the Wivenhoe Pub Trail in 2020:

  • Location of the building
  • Date of opening and closure
  • Record of brewery ownership
  • Landlords

The pubs are arranged in alphabetical order by name. The information is not complete but continues to be updated as more information comes to light.
