Peggy Bedford

Picture source: Shayne Harrison


The Peggy Bedford Hotel was situated at 460 Bath Road. Set back from the road, the additional block on the roadside was added in front of the original. It was known as the Peggy Bedford after the licensee who died in 1859. Previously known as The Kings Head, it closed in 1928 when the new Peggy Bedford was built on the Colnbrook bypass. Only the Tudor part of the building (grade-II listed) remains after a 1934 fire.

My ancestors George Henry De Saulles and his son George Henry Blondell De Saulles managed this pub in the 1870's & 1880's.

I grew up in what was the original Peggy Bedford, a house known as The Stables in the village of Longford on the A4. I believe that Peggy was the daughter of a landlord of the coaching inn then called the Kings Head and she ran the inn after her fathers death. In her honour the inn was renamed.
