Shepherd & Dog, Crays Hill

It is not know when this photograph of the Shepherd & Dog was taken. Perhaps you can help.

The building was owned at this time by Wells & Perry Ltd. who styled themselves as The Chelmsford Brewery. Their address was 26 Duke Street Chelmsford and the brewery was founded in 1793

The brewery was taken over by Taylor Walker in 1934 who were subsequently acquired by Ind Coope Ltd of Romford in 1959.

Locally Wells & Perry Ltd. owned a number of other pubs, The Chequers in Billericay High Street, The De Beauvoir Arms at Downham, The Nags Head at Ramsden Heath and The Bear in Stock.

  • Must be after 1890 as that was when Chelmsford Brewery was registered to acquire Wells & Perry. This would be very soon after the acquisition, possibly in 1890 or 1891.

  • Mrs Savagear as the landlady at the Chequers – not sure which year.
