Brimpton History: Hyde End Fisheries

Brimpton History: Hyde End Fisheries

Normally, when I begin to research a property for one of these posts, I like to make a visit to take an up-to-date “now” photo for comparison. Sadly that’s not possible with today’s subject, since all traces of it have been wiped off the face of the earth – or at least the visible earth. Who knows what still lies beneath…? The Fisheries at the bottom of Hyde End Lane seem to have been located on the site of what…

Brimpton History: Tanner Stores

Brimpton History: Tanner Stores

For the first post of 2023, I wanted to take a look back at another of the village’s one-time retail establishments – something the village no longer lays claim to, sadly.

According to research collected by David Hyde (including from our own ‘Brimpton Story’), the existing building replaced an old one that was destroyed in a fire – though some original parts remain, including…

Brimpton History: Horse and Jockey Pub

Brimpton History: Horse and Jockey Pub

While the recent closure of the Three Horseshoes pub might lead you to believe it was the only pub in Brimpton, there have actually been a number over the years. We’ve already covered the Pineapple in Brimpton Common, but over on Hyde End Lane they also used to have their own public house, in the shape of the Horse and Jockey. As the pub has now been converted to a residential home, it’s hard to find out much about its…
