  1. A fine example of the now rapidly disappearing ‘trade’ of hand-crafted signwriting to the shopfront and the illustrated panel-sign at high-level. There is also other decorative lettering set within the bar-room windows. Unlike today, where the name of the licensee/ landlord is usually on a small plaque in tiny letters over the main entrance, here Mr Fenner’s tenure is prominently displayed . The whole frontage is reminiscent of another well-known Stockton pub, photographed in it’s original format, to be found here.



    • I believe the Raby Castle disappeared circa 1935. In August 1935 Stockton Borough Council received an offer to purchase the license of the pub subject to the license moving to a proposed site in Durham Road. The area occupied by the Raby Castle at this time was part of the Church Row widening scheme. The last licensee I can find is Mrs F G Carroll in 1934.
