OUR feature about some of Worcester's lost pubs prompted a trip down memory lane for many of our readers.

Paul Rencher was one who got in touch to tell us of his family's connections with city pubs that date back about a century.

Paul said: "In the early 20th century, grandad Harry Rencher was at the long-gone Green Dragon in Newport Street.

"From 1954 to 64, my dad Les Rencher ran the Crowle House in Hill Street after marrying my mum, whose grandmother ran the pub previously.

"Mum's uncle, George Morris, ran the Goodrest then the Lansdowne over several decades.

"I still have relatives on mum's side who have the Punch Bowl in Ronkswood.

"It's obviously in the blood."

Margaret Webley got in touch to say that her late cousin and her husband use to run The Holly Bush.

Do you remember these lost pubs in Worcester?

Colin Rouse said: "I used to live in the Fountain Inn (latterly the Salmon's Leap) in Severn Street. It was the hub of the area then when it was closed, it was bought by the King's School and knocked down. It was a very happy part of Worcester."

Suzanne Gwynne said: "I lived at the Barley Mow from the late 40s-early 50s. I remember it fairly well but I was only young so don't know about the pub side of it!"

Graham Lane had lots of information about several pubs.

"The Deer's Leap, once my local, was run by a very nice guy Terry Reece and his blonde wife.

"His elderly father ' John' would often be in the bar.

"At these times the Horn & Trumpet in Angel Place known to all locals as the "Blower" was managed by a Chris Baggus and his wife Eileen they later moved to the Rising Sun on the Hanbury Wharf Road by Droitwich.

"Also very popular was the Raven Inn on Droitwich Road run by a Neville and Mary Keys for many years."
