Located on the rather grandly
named St. Martin's Le Grand the Lord Raglan
occupies the ground and first floor of a lovely three storey Victorian
Although the pubs frontage is small, it stretches back for a good distance,
the bar is midway down on the left, there is a large first floor balcony
overlooking the ground floor bar. An abundance of dark wood and red walls,
old pictures and maps of the City along with other memorabilia gives a
which is in keeping with the building.
Come out of the Lord Raglan, cross the road, turn right and head towards a blue police call box about 25 yards walk, there, on your left you will find the entrance to Postman's Park. A small park where you can find a tiled wall celebrating ordinary people who lost their lives trying to save others. This was the idea of the painter G F Watts (1817-1904), the hand lettered tiles are the work of Doulton and is something very special to see.
