Humber This pub was named after the Humber motor company, which began in 1868 when Thomas Humber made his first bicycles. The company switched to cars in 1905 and was later absorbed by the Rootes group, then Chrysler, then Talbot. The pub is thought to date from c1910 and is quite sizable. It was typically plush and had snob-screens. When the factory was still working pints were lined up at lunchtimes for the thirsty factory workers to swig back.
