I believe the road changed name from Upper Luton Road to Capstone Road by 1938.

In May 2014, the pub was called "Mossy's Tavern" but reverted back to the "Wheatsheaf" again by April 2015. The location is on Capstone road directly opposite Hopewell Drive.

The "Wheatsheaf" had the most successful Petanque team in the UK at one point during the 90's. First called the Wheatsheaf, then the 'Old sheaf. Now disbanded.

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

As such I have found a picture of the pub, but to date have no other information. 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.
