The Cape of Good Hope (2)
The Cape of Good Hope (2)
The pub was built in the early 19th century to serve the workers at the nearby large coal mine and blast furnace, which were close to Southall Bank Farm. These didn't survive many years, but late in the same century a new pit was sunk near to the pub. This pit didn't survive either but the pub has, and is now the focal point of what remains of the village. Originally the village centre was by the church, but that is now a mile away, with only a farm and a couple of cottages as neighbours.
