This book on the pubs & breweries of the Ilsleys traces their history and the people who ran them.
Many of the people who ran the pubs were not local, but
originally came to the village in connection with the Sheep
Fairs, the Corn Market or horse racing, and stayed as
publicans. There are many links between the new families and
older village families - more of a family web than a family
tree! West Ilsley was the brewing village - being the home of
the original Morland brewery as well as an older brewery,
known as Horner's. The book includes an index to the
publicans and their families, together with maps and photos.
It will be of interest to both genealogists and local
historians (as well as those interested in pubs).
