Five ‘fascinating’ post-war pubs have gained listed status
The drinking establishments are among the first to be protected by Historic England.
A listed pub may conjure up images of a thatched roof covering a wooden bar that has served pints for centuries, but five post-war watering holes have now gained the status.
The English establishments were among the first built after the 1950s to get the protection when their Grade II listings were announced on Friday.
Historic England’s chief executive Duncan Wilson said the “fascinating” pubs are some of the best surviving examples of their generation. Here is why:
– The Centurion Public House, Bath, Somerset
– The Crumpled Horn, Swindon, Wiltshire
– The Never Turn Back, Caister-on-Sea, Norfolk
– The Queen Bess Public House, Scunthorpe, Lincolnshire
– The Wheatsheaf, Camberley, Surrey
