Two Poplars, 118 Finchampstead Road, Wokingham, Berkshire

At East Heath in 1907 and before.
The building is on the site of an earlier building and then was rebuilt or at least extensively altered in the 1850s, probably at the time it was first used as a beer house. Recent additions dwarf the older structure.
The Two Poplars was originally a beer house catering for the workers building the railway from Guildford to Reading. The beer house was at first called the Engineer, and then the Engineer’s Arms, or lngineers’ Arms. Sometime before 1880 the name had changed to the Two Poplars.
It was leased to various breweries before being sold to Henry Hewlett of the Waltham St. Lawrence brewery in 1888. *
