526 – The Star Inn

Two pictures for you today;

The plaque is on the upright between the green window and the archway. Not far from Nelson’s Bar, just a little way down the High street is Beamister’s Lane. Here at Former The Star Inn, now Nelsons Bar, The pressgangs would sit and watch the revellers. You can imagine them following a man, who was slightly the worse for wear, making his way home along Beamister’s Lane. Only to receive a tap on the back of the head and to wake up, not only with a bursting headache, but probably in a cage on board a Royal Navy warship, perhaps somewhere out in the channel

It looks like the Star Inn used to be a coach stop. Perhaps the building goes back further. The plaque refers to the Assembly room, which I assume is now Emma’s a thriving nightclub. So still a thriving centre of the community. I’ve never been in there myself.

Although I have been in to the new agents on the odd occasion. They haven’t been there long. It used to be one of those interesting little shops that was primarily a shoe repair but also sold a range of interesting products, including quite a good range of binoculars and spotter scopes. I was quite disappointed to see it closed.

I have another blue plaque lined up for next week.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
