Weston Duke of Marlboroughhistorical era: mid 20th century
closed Late 1930s.
The Duke of Marlborough is listed in the 1910 Redisham Rates book, but later annotated "de-licensed". So must have closed some time soon after 1937 (the last listed licensee) as that rates book was only in use up to the late-1930s.
The pub is shown here on an old OS map from about the end of the 19th century (larger map. The building at this location now appears too modern to have been the pub, so we assume the pub's been demolished.
