SIR TIMOTHY SHELLEY - CHAPEL ROAD - CLOSED 2017
New bar, no history, ex carpet shop. Part of the Wetherspoons chain.

"This Wetherspoon pub stands on land once owned by Sir Timothy Shelley, the son of the famous poet Percy Bysshe Shelley, and one of Worthing’s first commissioners." (from pubs web site)

Sadly that quote is in error. Sir Timothy was the son of Sir Bysshe Shelley and the father of renowned romantic poet and dramatist Percy Bysshe Shelley.

And the man himself.
