Patrick Chaplin: Pub History

Pub Signs

Pub Signs

In addition to darts I do actually have other pub-related research interests and one of these is pub signs.

Although I suppose this is a peripheral activity compared to my interest in the habit of folks throwing pointy metal objects at walls I do thoroughly enjoy my occasion sortie into pub signs and pub names. As a result every so often my research into signs has been published in the Newsletter of the Pub History Society (PHS) and some of those are reproduced here with permission.

This section of my website gives me the opportunity to present to a wider readership some of the articles that have been published by the PHS over the past few years.

For those wishing to learn more about pub signs, please check out the Inn Sign Society’s website at
