HERE we continue the theme of the main Nostalgia page and show more pictures of the pubs in the High Street in West Wycombe over the last 100 years or so.

The villagers were certainly well catered for in terms of liquid refreshment!

Top: West Wycombe High Street in c.1900, with the George & Dragon on the right, and the Plough and More village pubs from the past century Send your pictures to Nag’s Head opposite.

In the distance villagers are standing across the road; are they expecting an important visitor or taking part in some form of protest.

Above left: The Black Boy in 1925, when it was close to the end of its life as a pub, with an adjacent garage/motor engineers.

Above right: The Swan in 1903 before it was rebuilt. In the street outside the pub a horse-drawn omnibus is about to depart for the journey through Wycombe to Loudwater. Facing it is a Wheeler’s (the Brewery) dray.
