The Pubs

The Three Horseshoes

Among 18th century leases of the Pisford's Charity cottages were a cooper and a "victualler" (i.e. one who supplies food). In 1823 2 cottages were leased to Thomas Walton, yeoman, in 1845 and were described as of "Horseshoes", brewer. This is now the Three Horseshoes.

The Malt Shovel

In 1801 the Malt Shovel is described as the "newly erected malthouse", and incorporates an earlier half timbered building. (Charles Penn, the publican, took over the Malt Shovel in 1908.and was also there in 1910 but we have no more information than that).

The Shunt

The house that was situated on the Watery Lane side of Weston crossroads (demolished in 2009) was also, long ago, a pub.
