This website aims to record and preserve the histories of the pubs, inns,
taverns and breweries of the Midlands' region. There is an emphasis on
Birmingham and the Black Country, however other towns and places are featured. Consequently,
you will find sections on other counties of the Midlands
region, though maybe not in such great detail. The website is a great
resource for those interested in public houses and breweries but also offers a
wealth of information for those researching social history and genealogy. There
are thousands of images and hundreds of maps for you to browse and enjoy.
Use the site map link in the top right-hand corner of any page to find what you are
looking for. Alternatively, use the search box. This may not show recent updates
as these need archiving by Google and this seems to take a few weeks. To further help easy navigation, drop-down menus are also
provided at the top of most pages and there are also menus in the right-hand
column to help you move around quickly.
Although some trickery and effects have been deployed to make the site a
visually enjoyable experience, great effort has been made to ensure that the
pages will download relatively quick and can be viewed on most browsers. All
pages have been validated at
W3C so hopefully you will be able to enjoy the site no matter what machine
you are using, no matter what browser you have and will fit on most screen
I announce all updates on the site's
Facebook pages. So, if you would like to keep up-to-date with what's going
on please subscribe. It's free, it's easy and it's fun.
There are lots of items on the
Facebook pages, along with hundreds of large photos, debate and forum chat.
But here are a few recent posts to the website...
“Few things are more pleasant than a village graced with a good church, a good
priest and a good pub.”
