There were two pubs in Nettleton.  The first to close was the King William which closed some time in the first half of the1960s.  I never visited it when it was a pub, probably because it was before I started drinking in pubs!  It is now a private house in Nettleton Shrub on the junction with the West Kington road.

My parents were the penultimate landlords at the “King Willy” as it was known locally. They left in 1957 when I was seven . The pub was not really viable then partly because the landlady who had been there for many years only moved to another pub two miles away in Burton. Also the Salutation just up the road had just been modernised by Courages and Ushers who owned the King William were behind the times.
