(Essex Pubs) - By Ian Hunter of Tiptree, Essex

A tribute to the memory of our friend, Ian 'Pubby' Hunter, God bless him, by the Friends of Ian Hunter and the Essexpub. You are probably one too.- God bless; and is endorsed by his brother John, and father Ron. Thank you.

ENTER the Essex Pub OR London & the South of England

As Ian put so much hard work into his Essex Pubs site, we would like his achievements to remain forever. This site will always remain a tribute to Ian 'Pubby' Hunter ( - September 2003). Lets build a tribute annex to his site to make it grow the way Ian planned (this deadpubs site).

Plus a big thank you to John Mead, who tirelessly added census data to this site; and passed away Nov 13th, 2005 - It was a pleasure to know John as a friend.

Ten years on, in 2013, Ian has spawned the biggest pub history site in the UK. The pub history site now covers all of London, the home counties and more. The pub history site now has over 10,000  images, and well over 40,000 pages. In another ten years, it will cover most of the UK, and it will be a whole lot bigger! I am proud to have continued Ians work, and this site just gets bigger and better every day.
