The Broadway

 

 

 
The Broadway was situated on Bowbridge Road. This pub opened in 1939 and has now been demolished.

Every Christmas I used to take my grandad, originally from Newark, to Bromley Avenue to visit the cemetery to lay a wreath (same street he used to live in) on his parents graves. After our visit we always used to call into the Broadway for a pint before driving back to Peterborough - he moved south looking for work. I can always remember him saying that his grandfather laid the floor in the pub when it was built.
A few years ago (and one or two after he passed away) I visited the cemetery with my wife. I have to say I was looking forward to a pint in our old stop off only to find that the Broadway had gone and a care home stood in its place. Itís such a shame that another old brick pub has been pulled down, and one to which I had a bit of a connection.
