The Last Post, The Ship Inn, Lower Stoke

The other day I mentioned the history of The Ship Inn pub (in Lower Stoke), and how my Great-Great-Grandfather (Henry Spencer) ran it between 1889 and 1901.

In those days the pub looked very different to the building that was demolished recently, the original building having been knocked down in the 1950s. So the photograph below is quite literally 'the last post' - the final bit of evidence of a pub having been on this site.
