The Steamer

Although the Steamer Inn was never listed in trade directories for Langley Burrell, in 1871, the census taker noted a building in the village had formerly housed the Steamer Inn. The moniker has stuck ever since. It is likely that the name was associated with the Great Western Railway, whose line passed through the village and had provided many local men employment for several decades by 1871. That year, the house provided a home to Thomas Bryant, a plasterer, his wife Grace and their grown-up children Edwin, a railway labourer and daughter Mary, a dressmaker. Together with their spouses and children. A total of 12 people.

The red brick, stone-dressed and slated house dates from the early nineteenth century. Today it is a grade II listed building.
