Lord Palmerston

Florence Philpott, publican

Picture source: Sarah Dignasse


The Lord Palmerston was situated on St Matthews Street. This pub closed in 1962.
My great-grandparents, James and Florence Agnes Philpott, lived in and ran the pub in the late 19th century and although James died in 1913, Florence continued to run the pub with her daughters. Florence died in 1944 and the newspaper cutting for her death says that she had lived at the Lord Palmerston for 63 years. I think her daughter, Glady, took over the licence and ran the pub until it closed for the redevelopment of the road
