Von Alton

Picture source: Dave Dunmall


The Von Alton was situated at 63 High Street. This pub closed in 2004 and has remained empty since then. Previously known as the Gaslamp.

I can remember, in the late 80s, when Norman ran the pub, it was so busy, solicitors and office workers packing the pub at lunchtime, and a good local mix of trade in the evenings, and weekends, especially Sunday, as an overspill from the Ship.
Makes you wonder why such pubs cease to trade.
Bill Tanner
