Bablake Boy, 41 Cow Lane
|This pub gets its name because it was owned by Bablake School.
In 1830 it is part of Scott's Charity and the tennant, William Webb, was given a 42 year lease. He was said to have substantially repaired and partially rebuilt the premises, which now comprise a public house called the Bablake Boy. From this we can surmise that the pub was relatively new at that date. In 1865 it was leased by William Webb for £26 per annum and was said to belong to Bablake School. Perhaps Scott's Charity was one of the school's charities. In 1924 the license was surrendered for the granting of an off-beerhouse license to The Park Stores, Holbrooks Lane. The pub closed on 30th September 1924.|
