The Valiant Soldier Pub Left Untouched Since 1960s Reopens For The Summer

BUCKFASTLEIGH, UNITED KINGDOM - MAY 16: A period radio in The Valiant Soldier pub on May 16, 2011 in Buckfastleigh, Devon, England. The time warp pub was left unchanged from when it closed in 1965 until reopened as museum nearly 30 years later in 1998. During World War II, The Valiant Soldier was a regular haunt for American GIs based on the outskirts of the village of Buckfastleigh. After the last pint was pulled in 1965, beer glasses remained unwashed, old currency was left in the till, a darts match was left unfinished and unopened bottles of wine and beer were stashed behind the bar whilst the last landlady continued to live upstairs until she moved to a nursing home in 1997.
