Earl Greys Castle

Picture source: Stephen Harris

Earl Greys Castle was situated at 71 Vallance Road. This was quite a short-lived pub, present by 1901 and effectively closed in 1926.  Quaker philanthropist Mary Hughes bought the pub in 1926 and renamed it the Dew Drop Inn, converting it to ‘a place of rest and refreshment for the homeless’.  Trade Union meetings also took place here, as well as Sunday services for the Christian Socialists.  Mary Hughes remained here until 1941; the former pub is now in private residential use.
