NORFOLK - CHAPEL ROAD 1850 to 2005

Originally built in 1850 it would have been one of the first pubs to be seen entering Worthing from the north via Broadwater. In its latter years it has traded under various names including:  Flappers (1989), Space Bar, Area 51 (1991), MIB and 3TO (2002). 3TO apparently stood for THIS THAT & THE OTHER. The building was Demolished in 2005/6 and replaced with a retail unit and flats.

We believe this was the original building constructed on 1850 but the picture itself is turn of the century.

"Norfolk Hotel" - in mid-1980s. The then licensee was Paul Callister (previously of Tiroler Bar), who I have been told, was found passed out in the bar one morning and was subsequently relieved of his licence.  Paul is I believe recovered and still with us, I'm glad to say.



We are grateful to Jan and Vince Flowers for the picture above. Dated around 1950 it shows family and friends enjoying an evening at the Norfolk. So far all but two have been named. Are you there or do you know who's not indentified.


Russell Wainscote: Russell ran the Norfolk in the 1960's, he used to play professional football for Leeds United 1925 to 1931.

This picture of a woman and child was taken in the 1950s. The woman is Joan Morley and the young girl, (a cousin) is Carol Morley. Our tanks to Sharon de Coursy for the photograph. Sharon is the daughter of Joan.

A rare picture of the Norfolk as Flappers, a themed 1940s pub/restaurant and nightclub. Just visible  above the main door is a silver art deco style female statuette - possibly scantily clad as was the style at the time.
