Mason's Arms match box

Above match box, date unknown, kindly sent by Debi Birkin.

 

Ind Coope & Co Ltd purchased the pub from Budden & Biggs Brewery Ltd by conveyance and assignment dated 23 March 1931. The pub held a full license.

I am informed it changed name to the "What the Dickinns" but as yet don't know the date of change.

 

This pub is one in the list of my "Project 2014."

Unfortunately I haven't managed to find a picture of this pub at present but the research continues. Local knowledge, further pictures, and licensee information would be appreciated.

I will be adding the historical information when I find or are sent it, but this project is a very big one, and I do not know when or where the information will come from.

All emails are answered.
