The Green Bushes, Stockton. October 2013

A former Stockton pub. The railings and gate are very ornate and the building itself, although not very wide, is quite long and I wonder if it was once a hotel or grand town house? Like a lot of the buildings in the High Street some of those on Yarm Lane also are very ornate, or once were, especially if you look up above the modern shop fronts.

  1. Some time in the late 70s I went on 2 different ”Paddys” night bus trips from the Bushes. I’m pretty sure they were organised by Hughie O’Rourke a larger than life character who was a Bushes regular for many years. Just for the record both trips finished up in Whitby with much alcohol being consumed.

  2. The original green bushes was not as tall as the building is today. I have seen pictures of it in Stockton history books where it is only two levels high and much later on they built another storey to it.
