Grantham stalwart Terry Shelbourne has certainly put his mark on the town.

A close friend of the Journal as our long-running cartoonist, Terry has very kindly shared with us the photos he diligently took and archived of signwork he, brother Michael and nephew Timothy, carried out between 1960 and 1990.

We have no doubt that they will bring back many memories for readers, and what better place to start off this picture series than in the pub?

The Nag’s Head was located at 1 Wharf Road, now the home of Gurkha Square. The pub was built in 1883 and was popular for its real ales.

When developers came in 2002, they said: “There isnt a straight wall or a right-angle in it” and also discovered a small, hidden room.

* See next week’s Memory Lane in the Grantham Journal for more of Terry’s photos.
