|PUB LIST||PUBLIC HOUSES||Paul Skelton|
South Sandy Lane
It is not yet known whether this public house ever opened as at the Borough Police Court in September 1865, Benjamin James Ricketts applied for a licence for the above house, but was refused by the Magistrates, given the reason as "his house being in an unfinished state," he was advised to apply again the following year. I believe the house was eventually completed, but by February, 1867 was running under the name of "Oak and Ivy."
The above was probably a rebuild of the original that existed in 1847 as a beer-house as South Sandy Lane changed name to Blemheim Road in 1869, two years after the pub changed name, if the information is correct.
