The Glue Pot, Swindon
The Glue Pot, Swindon
A Hop Back Brewery pub on the corner of Emlyn Square and Reading Street, in the Railway Village built by the Great Western Railway in the mid 19th century to house its employees near its main railway works. The pub got its name from the railway coachbuilders (in the era when coaches were wooden) who brought their gluepots with them when they took their breaks. They put their pots on the pub's central stove to keep them hot.
The stove and the coachbuilders are both long gone. LinkExternal link to a view of the name sign.
