Oil Millers Arms

Picture source: Gary Wilson


The Oil Millers Arms was situated at 30 East Marsh Street. This pub was built in 1865 and took its name from Sowerby's oil mill, which stood just a few yards away down East Marsh Street. In 1943 the Oil Millers saw tragedy when a butterfly bomb hit the building. The then landlord, Jock Young, bravely tried to get the bomb outside, but it exploded and killed him. The pub was closed and demolished in 1979.
