The stories and legends associated with some of our most popular pubs. From Highwaymen to haunting, from poets to Great Train Robbers! Find out more about the pubs you thought you knew. A talk by local author Clive Whichelow (Wimbledon Society). In addition to the nine existing pubs in Wimbledon Village there are many more which have vanished in the mists of time: The Beehive, The Jolly Gardeners, The Lord Palmerston etc, but where were they and what are their stories? The existing pubs include The Rose & Crown, The Dog & Fox, The Swan, Hand in Hand, Crooked Billet. But which is the oldest, which one was used as a changing room for Wimbledon FC and where exactly was the first Watney brewery? Find out at this talk. The talk will also cover Raynes Park
