Clay Cross once had a public house every few yards.
Just some of the pubs of Clay Cross. Most of the have now gone, some completely demolished. Few are still open but like all other pubs throughout the country they are finding it hard to carry on.
The Covid Virus in 2020 has made it even harder for them to go on. Lets hope to see them open again soon.
