Local historian Geoff Sandles returns with the final book in the series of Gloucestershire pubs Through Time, and takes us on a journey down the River Severn from Tewkesbury to the Vale of Berkeley, covering the pubs in the City of Gloucester and its suburbs. From isolated riverside inns to bustling city pubs this selection of archive images is sure to impress, and will bring back memories of the bygone era and the humble public house. With the rise of supermarket trades, the habit of drinking and the pubs themselves have changed significantly in recent years. It is with this in mind that such buildings drenched in social history should not be forgotten. With beautiful scenery and an array of welcoming inns, now is the perfect time to thumb through this collection of timeless old photographs that take you on a journey around Gloucester, Tewkesbury and the Severn Vale.

Geoff has a passion for pubs and beer. Now aged 55 he first got a taste for good beer in the mid 1970's. Fed up with the proliferation of heavy marketed keg beer he got on his push bike to seek out traditional beer that was still available in Gloucestershire. Eschewing the likes of Whitbread Tankard and Trophy he travelled far and wide to discover real ales from the Donnington Brewery near Stow on the Wold and flavoursome beers such as Wadworth 6X. Geoff joined the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) in 1979 to further his quest for the perfect pint, a long time objective that he is still happily pursuing. A chance discovery of two old books in Gloucester library documenting all licensed premises that once existed in Gloucestershire in 1891 and 1903 inspired Geoff to discover the location and history of thousands of bygone county pubs. The meticulous study has been posted on his highly acclaimed website - On the strength of the website Geoff co-wrote his first book 'Gloucestershire Pubs and Breweries' with fellow beer enthusiast Tim Edgell in 2005. Geoff is also the editor of the Gloucestershire Branch of CAMRA's quarterly newsletter 'the tippler'.
