Pub Trail – Principal Sources of Information

The Pub Trail is in digital form on the website and is based on the original paper-based leaflets produced in 2017 and information already on the Society’s website. The updating of the trail has relied almost exclusively on online sources. The publication ‘Chichester Pubs’ by David Middleton, Amberley Publishing 2017 was used as an aide memoire rather than a direct source for information  for which the sources below were used.

Main Sources consulted
