The Lower Crown Inn was demolished in the late 1960’s, and houses were built on the site. The pub was next to the village hall.

Gloucester Citizen, 25th February 1969 – “Disgraceful story” of a pub-fight (edit): Three men all knew in their minds that they were connected with a fight at a local inn, Mrs Diana Oldridge, chairman, said at Dursley Magistrates Court yesterday. But the evidence was so conflicting that they could not be found guilty. The three men pleaded not guilty and all agreed to be bound over for a year in the sum of £25 each.

Mrs Oldridge described the fight, in the Lower Crown, Uley, as a “disgraceful story.”, and she warned: “You must be very carefully not to become involved in anything like it again.”
