Summer Lane pubs
« on: March 20, 2021, 06:16:13 PM »
I have found an ancestor listed as a publican on thé 1901 census. The address is 25 Summer Lane. Does anyone know any of the pubs in Summer Lane were at that number? Thank you.

Drove down Summer Lane this morning ,  Haven’t been there for many years . I see the stags heads gone , couldn’t see the Clemence arms either . Born 60 Hospital Street opposite the Globe (61) which I never knew as a pub . I believe the school in Brearley streets gone , my mother went there . The pawn shop that was in summer Lane still haunts me Monday mornings . I used to take my dads suit in and get it back on a Friday . He never did know . It was my job to check for the big pins , a certain give away . Michael Smith

Thanks for your reply. You obviously had memories stirred up. I saw a list of 15 pubs in Summer Lane on the Bham History forum but no addresses for them and I don't know the area at all.

Hello PattiW There is a certain saying about the pubs in Summer Lane there is none ! Reason being the letter boxes are all in the side streets if the pubs are on a corner . Henceforth that is the postal address , not in Summer Lane . Hope this helps .

Thanks for that. The census entry was 25 Summer Lane Occupation Publican Working At Home. I assumed 25 Summer Lane was where he was a publican. Not sure now.

Hi All  - Yet the Vine was in Summer Lane?? next door to the Co-op just past corner of Summer Lane and New John St, The Brittania Inn was on the corner of New John St and Summer Lane opposite the Post Office- Stags Head on Corner of Brearley St and Summer Lane- so it might be correct about all, apart from the Vine??
