It is an ongoing project, designed to record and reserve the rich history of Pubs all over the land.

This is a brilliant thread, I've just come across it and shall be checking out some websites I've never heard of before.

The sites I already use have been mentioned on here, but if I come across any new ones I'll post them to you all.

Hello there!

I'm not used to this lark, but I presume you've sent me a sort of message because I posted a cry for help. Am I right? I don't really think any more can be done but who knows? What do you think?

Regards, Pat.
