Lord Duncan

Picture source: Dave Dunmall


The Lord Duncan was situated at 59 New Road. This is a Grade II listed building, which was built in 1799. It has remained empty since closure.

This was still a wonderfully busy and atmospheric old pub in the late sixties, with a loyal and vocal group of regulars. A memorable but not unusual event was when someone drained his pint before giving us a warbled rendition of the Paul Anka song 'Diana' - sang using his straight pint glass to add volume and tone.  All the - seated - women responded spontaneously with the much earlier "Don't do it tonight - the moon is shining bright ". A man was playing spoons too. When did you last see that? Very sad to see it all boarded up a few years later - but at least it hasn't been demolished.
