Some history of the Garrison Tavern
The Garrison Tavern stood on the northern side of Garrison Lane, on the western corner of Witton Street.
I have not researched this public-house in any detail. However, I thought I would upload a photograph so at least there is something to look at. I have also included the names of a few licensees. Oh, and an old newspaper article. So, better than a blank page but a lot of work needed. In the meantime, there is lots of information on Birmingham dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.
