An illustration project looking at the Public Houses and Working Men’s Clubs of Northampton tayn . . .
The illustrations are dated from the time the source material used was dated not from when the building originated, although some are both.
Please visit my blog post that has a written history about each building and it’s place in my memory as a lad growing up in Northampton during the 1970s and 80s.

Last Orders by Dave Knibb
Whilst I was doing this project my mate Richard told me about a book he had purchased by a local author which was all about lost pubs in Northampton. The book is a history and directory of Northampton Pubs and Inns trading before 1945. It is called ‘Last Orders’ and the author is Dave Knibb. You can find out more about this book by following the link at the bottom of this paragraph. Where you’ll find an article in the Chron. I met Dave recently and he is a jolly nice chap so please buy his book.
