|These premises have been known by different names during their history:||FROM||TO||NAME|
|1845||1880||BEERHOUSE (Sowe) / BEERHOUSE (Sowe Waste)|
|Is this something to do with bull baiting or is it a reference to the three leopards on the coat of arms of the Sydney family?
In 1880 this was the Beerhouse, Sowe.
This pub was on the same side of Woodway Lane, but 'further down'. I can only guess this means nearer to Coventry. When the local collieries were at their peak this pub would be full of miners drinking beer every night. By the 1930s it had been convereted into the local post-office and general stores.|
