History of Pubs and Breweries of the Midlands Region
Hello, I like a whole host of things such as cycling, drinking beer, history, architecture, photography, music and cinema. My interests and passions are all featured within this website in no particular order. I hope you find something you like.
Note : you will not find the West Midlands on this site. As I focus on historical material I do not recognise the Local Government Act of 1972. So, if you are interested in the Black Country have a look at my Staffordshire and Worcestershire sections. Same rules apply when I am cycling in other parts of the UK. For example, If I write about Liverpool I am in Lancashire not Merseyside.
Warning : if I find you have copied any material on this site, be it text or images, I will come after you. I have put in the hours, took the photographs, paid for the historical images, and presented it online for people to enjoy NOT to steal and take the credit.
Watermarks : Sadly, due to muppets half-inching my images and posting them on other platforms, I have been forced to place watermarks and logos on my images. This sucks, but blame the idiots not me.
Integrity : if, like me, you are tired or annoyed by some of the drivel you read in local history books and online, I can promise that the information on this site is, to the best of my knowledge and efforts, accurate. Have a look at my methodology for more information. If you prefer twaddle I suggest you head off to a social media site.
Offensive : I was born on Lye Waste so I am as rough as they come. I am a straight-talker and not afraid to swear. In fact, I like swearing. If you are going to be offended by such language DO NOT ENTER.
