New Pear Tree Inn
New Pear Tree Inn
A hostelry has stood on this site for many years. The current building was built in 1937 to serve the expansion in trade as the neighbouring Scotlands Estate and private housing developed. The pub marked the terminus of the trolleybus route. The licensee was Bert Adey the noted local boxer, trainer, second and promoter. Contests were held in the field behind the pub drawing crowds of up to 3000. Bert retired after almost half a century. The pub recently reverted to the Pear Tree name after several years as the Millhouse.
