Bedford Vaults

The Bedford Vaults was situated off Old Town Street. This pub was previously known as The Bedford Inn. First listed in 1885, it was closed and demolished in the mid 1960s.
In 1956 I was a young Chief petty officer in the Royal Navy. I discovered this pub and in the cocktail bar at the back. I spent many hours in peace there . Just me and the bar girl. My wife had died suddenly when I was at sea and I needed to get away from the naval crowd and the mess deck, The Vaults were a real godsend. I am now 86 and still remember the pub with thanks
