The Public Houses of Blewbury

Member Dave Carless has an ongoing project to record as much information as possible village pubs past and present.

Location of the old saw pit

The Sawyers Arms, demolished in 1968, was located on South Street and close to a sawpit. But where was the actual location of the sawpit? We are looking for proof that it was located in the garden of Eastbrook.

The following men are named on the 2nd World War record certificate as Blewbury men: James Finn, Michael Growcott, Reginald Hayden, Lesley Robinson, James Wheatley, Peter Waterfield. Our research has not yet revealed who they are or their connection to the village.

If you can help with any information, please contact us.


Empty scrapbooks to hold the thousands of press cuttings we have relating to the village from 1950 onwards. If you fancy helping us compile them too whilst being able to read the cuttings them please contact us.


We have the digital technology to enhance and repair old photographs. If you have any related to Blewbury that we can do this with and that we can save a digital copy in our archives then please let us know. There is no damage to the original.

Blewbury Publication
