On Tuesday 4th March 1913 it was heard that notice had been served on the brewer, on 9th February 1913, that the house was to be considered for closure by compensation. The licence holder at the time (Ellen Wales) had held the licence since January 1912 and paid a rent of £10. There was a sitting-room partitioned off behind the bar, which was in terrible condition, dark, dismal and stuffy. The staircase was old and almost dangerous and accommodation was of the worst possible character.
The nearest licensed house was the MITRE and within a radius of 300 feet there were four ale houses and one full licence. Within 600 feet there were 20 ale houses.
Trade had been good at the house
in 1910 it was 197 barrels
in 1911, 140 and
in 1912, 87.
The average trade being 141 barrels
Messrs Lacons said they would let this licence go if the FREE TRADE TAVERN had its licence renewed.
Licence renewed.
