Abbot John

 

 


The Abbot John was situated on the High Street, closing in the 1970s.

This pub seemed to commemorate Abbot John of Wheathampstead who was Abbot of St Albans between 1420 and 1465 (in spite of Wheathampstead parish belonging to the Abbey of Westminster, which disputed the ownership of Nomansland with St Albans). Today he is commemorated in Abbott John Mews, oddly with two 't's.
