Richard Holmes is a local historian who continues to research the pubs, inns,taverns and breweries of Kingston. His talk, which promises to be enlightening and amusing, will be based on his book, supplemented with some new material.
Kingston’s pubs are fast disappearing. To illustrate this, Richard’s book, which covers the Tudor period to the start of the twenty-first century, lists about 240 pubs of which, in 2010, only about 40 had survived. Seven years later, there are even less.
