Overview | Gallery | Historical info | Public transport | Map

It's thought that the Pilot closed some time between 1880 (when the map below was surveyed) and 1904 (when a subsequent map didn't show it). Its site is listed in the 1909 Rates book as "Vine Inn (late)", which strengthens the case for closure about this time.

This dockside area is now occupied by the new university central building.

The Pilot can be seen here on an 1881 map

shown on an 1881 map

It's also listed at the Quay and at Ridley's Quay (in 1844) and Dock Side (in 1891).
