Hitchmoughs Black Country Pubs

Free Downloads

Welcome to our free downloads where you'll find the histories over 5,500 Black Country pubs in PDF format

We find new information all the time, and, because this is not in the published files, which are formatted, bookmarked and have images, we have decided to start to make our working files available. These files are text only, and not formatted or bookmarked; the new information is coloured green; at the end of the file is a section for information that we have not been able to attribute to a specific pub.

We hope you find these downloads useful. Please, if you can, show your appreciation by contributing information or photographs. You are free to use our research as you see fit, but we would ask that if you do use it, please give us an acknowledgement as the source, and a link to this website would be appreciated.
