Some history of the Railway Tavern at Tamworth in Staffordshire
More information on the Railway Tavern at Tamworth to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to the Railway Tavern 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 Railway Tavern. There is information on Staffordshire dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.
"Andrew Gibling, Irish labourer, Shuttington, was charged with using obscene language in George Street, on the 11th inst. It appears that
defendant went to the Railway Tavern, and grossly abused Mr. Redding, the landlord, and became so violent that a crowd collected in the street. On the 14th ult. he was
guilty of similar conduct at the Railway Tavern, and sent to gaol. Defendant did not appear and the bench inflicted a fine of 20s. and 8s. 6d. costs, or a month."
