History of Christchurch

Recording the history of the village of Christchurch (originally Brimstone Hill) in Cambridgeshire

Farmers Boy

The Farmers Boy was one of four Public Houses once operating in the village. It is situated at the Church Road junction with Padgetts Road (once Tips Road). It is now a private residence.

“The Farmer’s Boy has a long history, dating back over 200 years. Originally two buildings, the current Pub provides a full range of drinks, meals and entertainment. Situated on the junction of Church Road and the B1100 Welney Road on the edge of the village, it was sold in 1978 by the Norwich Brewery and is now free house owned by Mr & Mrs Saunders.
