The Lord Wolseley

The great Dead Pubs site has this picture of the Lord Wolseley pub (76 Upper Brockley Road), showing a charabanc outing gathered by the pub in around 1920. The pub, which stood opposite the Wickham Arms, closed in the 1990s and was converted to flats - pictured below:

Always a good pint of Guinness and the chance of a lock-in at the Wolseley I seem to remember

In the mid-1990s, the Wolseley was completely a student pub, before the housing boom made Brockley a little less of a student multi-occupancy area. There was one aging rastafarian who always say by the fire. At that time, the Wickham was very hostile to students and anyone vaguely bohemian looking, as I recall.
