Fortune of War

From Historical Hastings

Constructed circa 1824 on The Shelves (now Halton) by Thomas Sinnock circa 1824. Brett reports that the inn was reconstructed circa 1834, and, in the course of demolitions, a 'tub hole' was discovered - possibly utilised to store contraband[1], although this was most likely apocryphal; the premises having been advertised as possessing an ice house capable of storing forty tons of ice in 1829[2].


1832:William Fisher[3]
-1853:Henry Fuller[4]
1853:Stephen Farroll[4]


The pub was closed circa 1969 and demolished in the following year.
