Crispin, 45 Denmark Street, Wokingham, Berkshire

Wokingham pub history index

The Crispin is one of the oldest buildings in Wokingham. It was built in the 15th century as a hall-house. This means it had a large central hall the main room of the building open to the roof, with a fire in the centre of the room. It was obviously the home of a prosperous man. In later times it was 'modernised', and an upper floor built across the full breadth of the house.
Some time later it was divided into three cottages. By 1854, the owner of the central cottage (James Green) had become sufficiently prosperous as a 'brewer and beer seller', to buy out the other two owners and use the whole building as an inn. *
