Mermaid Yard, Bilston
« on: Wednesday 10 February 16 20:44 GMT (UK) »
Trying to trace where Mermaid Yard was in Bilston. Have also tried searching for Mermaid pub but none found. Any help would be appreciated.

Welcome to RootsChat! ;D

The Mermaid gets a mention on this thread:

Which actually links to:

There's a page devoted to the Old Mermaid in Hitchmough's Black Country Pubs.
