50 Pubs Associated With The Beatles:...

No. 41: The Merrie Harriers, Cowbeech, East Sussex.
The above pic of Brian and Nat Weiss, taken shortly before the former's demise, is generally thought to have been captured outside the pub in the mews behind his house in Chapel Street. This despite the fact that the exterior of that pub (The Horse and Groom) looks nothing like the one featured in the photo. I had thought the explanation must lie with our old friend renovation...but once again, I was mistaken.
Mark Lewisohn has tracked down the actual pub, namely the Merrie Harriers in Sussex, not far from Brian's country retreat Kingsley Hill:

These are Mark's pics of the pub, which he has kindly shared, and you lucky people can take them as a small taster of a forthcoming "pwoject" which will see his extensive Eppy archives shunted onto the web. Watch this space for details (and many thanks to Sir Thomas Titte).
