Pannier, 79 Birmingham Road, Allesley

These premises have been known by different names during their history:FROMTONAME
Panniers were large baskets used for carrying foods such as bread, fish and fruit. The word comes from the Latin panarium, a bead basket. Later they were specifically the baskets on either side of a saddle on a pack horse. This pub is now the 'Gable End', part of the Allesley Hotel, near the centre of the village. It is said that in the 18th century it had one of the finest bowling greens in England. In 1683 Martha Flynt, Lady of the Manor of Allesley, conveyed the inn to Timothy Stoughton, who lived next door at Allesley House, later the Allesley Hotel. The Pannier descended to Timothy Stoughton's son in 1704 and then to his grandson, another Timothy. Around 1723 it ceased to be an inn and became a private residence.
