Welcome to the wonkiest pub in Britain
What would you expect from a pub called the Crooked House?
Himley is a small village situated between Dudley and Wolverhampton. It is mostly unremarkable, and is perhaps best known as being the home of Himley Hall, the former home of the Lords of Dudley.
Himley has another claim to fame though, in that it is home to the wonkiest pub in Britain: the Crooked House.
Originally a farmhouse, this building became a pub in the 1800s, by which point it had already begun sinking to one side due to mining in the area.
It remains a pub, despite being condemned as unsafe roughly 80 years ago. With all this knowledge in mind, JOE decided to take a trip to this pub, to see if it’s all it’s cracked up to be and whether the rumours of gravitational anomalies are actually true.
One thought on “Welcome to the wonkiest pub in Britain ”
It’s so quintessentially British! I think I’d be seriously challenged to go into that pub, although it looks fine and ‘stable’ in the way the Tower of Pisa looks stable….. 🙂
