The Cock Of Tupsley.

The "Cock of Tupsley" well the site as it was before the pub ws built.This old black and white Farmhouse was demolished in 1965 due to the cost of renovation and the land subsequently sold to the Banks Brewery.

The farmhouse belonged to Jonathan Eaton's Grandmother who owned the property and who has kindly donated this picture.There is a large Horse Chestnut tree at the back of the farmhouse on the picture which can still be seen today.The view as is as you would look at the pub now,as in-fronting Hampton Dean Road and the side of Ledbury Road.
Very many thanks to Jonathan Eaton.

We have enjoyed many pub-meals at "The Cock" Tupsley, on our return visits to Hereford. I had no idea it's name derived from a breed of horses, -but since we have lots of relatives from Tupsley and Dormington etc., the "Cock of Tupsley" was a central point to meet up with them, and the food never disappointed.

Your picture (The Cock of Tuspley) shows the farmhouse associated with Tupsley Court Farm. It is not however taken pre 1960 but more like 1966 when the approx 2 acre site had been sold to Banks Brewery. I know this as the barn visible on the right was erected to replace the original farm building which ran immediately adjacent to Hampton Dene Road. As a lad, I worked on the farm and remember the building of the Cock by Harpers of Leominster very well.
