The Woodman was an estate pub built to replace the old Wilsons pub around the corner, the Grapes on Cross Lane, as well as the licences of Grove on Church Lane and Prince of Wales Feathers at Windsor Bridge.

It was built on Belvedere Road, parallel to Broad Street, around the same time as the closed Woolpack and still surviving Flemish Weaver, opening in 1971.  In 1985 it was converted into Sports theme pub but closed in 1990 and was demolished in 1993 [1].
