Nantwich has never been lacking in choice of somewhere to drink.
That fact is made very clear in ‘Nantwich Pubs’, a new book recently launched at Nantwich Museum.
Complied by local authors Andrew Lamberton and Bill Pearson the 164-page, fully-illustrated book (costing £11.95) is a comprehensive street by street review of local pubs past and present, along with past breweries in the town and the ghosts which haunt some establishments.
The authors will be attending the museum on Saturday 23rd June (10.30am-12pm) to sign copies of the book.
Readers will undoubtedly be impressed by the sheer number of establishments that have existed in the town throughout the centuries.
Of the supernatural, they can learn about the mad monk, the parliamentarian or possibly puritan who appears from time to time, the lady in the floral hat, logs floating past the fire, tables which move of their own accord and other strange goings-on.
The book will be of interest to those with an interest in the history of the town and one of its most popular trades.
The book is to be sold through the museum shop and other outlets throughout the town with all profits kindly donated by the authors to Nantwich Museum funds.
