Devonshire Arms, Sewall Highway

Photo This name reflects the extensive estates owned locally by the Dukes of Devonshire. Violets and primroses grew in profusion over the fields where the pub now stands. It opened in 1939 and in 1940 permission was granted to hold the Sunday School of St Mary Magdalene in the upstairs room. This must have been a wartime expediency. In 1985 it was said that the lounge was decorated with gnarled beams and clotted cream walls, quite a contrast to the functional red brick exterior.
