NZ2338 : The Brawn's Den public house, Winchester Drive, Brandon

taken 12 years ago, near to Brancepeth, County Durham, Great Britain

The Brawn's Den public house, Winchester Drive, Brandon
The Brawn's Den public house, Winchester Drive, Brandon
A very modern pub, named after the local belief that Brandon takes its name from Brawn's Den, or den of a notorious wild boar, a local semi-mythical beast, akin to the Lambton Worm (and that the nearby village of Brancepeth is likewise named after said beast). There is indeed, a farmstead nearby called Brawn's Den, but research suggests that the name Brandon has a quite different derivation. See LinkExternal link
