A somewhat unique characteristic of Wickenden Pub is that its tables are covered with a rather extraordinary level of graffiti - both written and carved into the wood. These tables present an excellent view into the history of the pub - essentially they represent a very condensed stratigraphy representing specific moments of previous pub experiences. These tables were purchased in the mid 1980s and have accumulated two decades of moments which we now have the opportunity to examine in detail.

Table graffiti has been explored through two different media: photographs and rubbings.

Think About:

This section has been organized by table. Each table has photographs and a rubbing. It is suggested that both sets of images be viewed at once for each table.
