Opened in 1957, Never Turn Back holds the honour of being the only pub of its name in the country. A memorial to the loss of nine lifeboat crew during the 1901 Caister Lifeboat disaster, it was designed by architect A W Ecclestone, also chief surveyor of local brewers Lacon’s.

Using vernacular building materials such as flint and cobbles, with Moderne and Art Deco influences, Ecclestone developed a distinctive local style. The pub survives largely intact, its tower mirroring a ship’s wheelhouse and lookout tower which was designed to be visible from the nearby sand dunes.

Address: Manor Road, Caister-on-Sea, Great Yarmouth, NR30 5HG

    The Queen Bess in Scunthorpe is just a boring faintly Georgian style nothing building. The others at least are quirky
