Hiya Derek,
Do you know if, in the 60's, there was a newish pub, in
the Stoke Street area, by the prefabs, alongside Park Station ?

The only 2 that I can think that were newish near there were the Pacific and the Pilot
My 1950s map ends just short of that area

In the same area, saw some renovation going on at The Old Trunk. Got the idea it might just be going to be accommodation though I could be wrong. Apparently Asians have cottoned on to buying up old pubs and converting them into flats, you've got to admire their business sense.

A corner shop + flats in some cases.
If you can get a pub with say 8 rooms upstairs, I think you could get £600 a week if not more and the mortgage paid for by the rents
As you say "you've got to admire their business sense."

hmm roughly £30,000 a year
