Here is what we think is the only comprehensive record of pubs and beerhouses within the Coventry city boundaries going back as far as available records allow. This is an ongoing project so contributions, corrections or additions to this archive, especially anecdotes, photos and media are most welcome. Feel free to contact us for a pint and a chat anytime.
The Wagon and Horses
Spon Arches 1929
WAGON AND HORSES
Goods were carried all over the country by horse-drawn waggons before the coming of the railways. Many inns acted as agents and goods could be left there for sending on or for collection by local people. Waggons and horses continued to be a familiar sight in most areas as they carried goods or farm produce over short distances.
This pub is shown on the 1851 Health map. There are no other known references.
