Duke Of Wellington

 


The Duke Of Wellington was situated at 44 Market Place, Romford, and was previously known as the Blucher's Head.

The pub appears to have been built in the 1820's. Marshall Blucher commanded the Prussian forces who fought with the British at the Battle of Waterloo in 1815. The name was changed to the Duke of Wellington on 15/4/1915 due to anti- German public opinion during World War I. The pub was demolished in 1967.
