Some history of the Nag's Head Inn on High Street Deritend in Birmingham in the County of Warwickshire
More information on the Nag's Head Inn on High Street Deritend to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to the Nag's Head Inn from another page. When building the site it is easier to place links as they crop up rather than go back later on. I realise this is frustrating if you were specifically looking for information on the Nag's Head Inn. There is information on Birmingham dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.
The Nag's Head Inn was certainly at No.29 High Street Deritend during the 19th century. If street numbering was the same in earlier years, this would be one of the first entries in a trade directory for this house. The victualler was Widow Wynn. Her husband Henry was listed as publican in 1770. Sketchley's trade directory published in 1767 lists Henry Winn as the publican of the White Lion at Deritend. In this year the miller and baker William Crane was running the White Lion at Digbeth so this evidently a different White Lion. Therefore, this is possibly an earlier name of the Nag's Head Inn. The house was certainly listed as the Nag's Head Inn within the licence register of the early 19th century. There was another White Lion further out of town on High Street Bordesley but that No.29 next to the name of Widow Wynn has me leaning towards this house - that is, until further evidence surfaces.
