Old Nags Head, Mitcham, Surrey

Picture source: Wade Brice


The Old Nags Head was situated at 11 Upper Green West.
This pub was frequented in the late 1960s and early 1970s by a World Heavyweight boxing contender by the name of Don Cockell, who fought Rocky Marciano for the world title in the 1950's. The landlords at the time were Brian and Avis Hall. Don was a skilled wrought ironworker and was responsible for much of the iron work in many of the local pubs.
