Star, 56 Peach Street, Wokingham, Berkshire

Wokingham pub history index

The Star Inn was directly opposite what is now known as Easthampstead Road, but what was until 1886 known as Star Lane (hence the Star Lane railway crossing). The inn closed in 1909 and has since been demolished and its site taken over by this parade of 'modern' shops. *
