The Queens Head
The Queens Head, 48 New Street, Lower Gornal.
First licensed in the 1860s.
Pub closed in the 1930s.
Looking for more info on this one, exact site not as yet confirmed.
A private dwelling still exists with house number 48 which could well have previously been this public house.
If this is so, it appears to have been a very small establishment.

At Bilston Licensing Sessions, in 1864, an application for renewing a licence on behalf of Mrs. Anne Guest, widow, of the Queens Head, pleaded that the premises had been erected regardless of expense purposely for a licensed house.
