At the Annual Licensing Day, Monday 6th September 1852, the magistrates
Platten, Wales and Pitcher sat for the purpose of issuing new licenses. That
of the Britannia beerhouse was a new application. Magistrates Platten and
Wales were of the opinion that there were already too many licenses. Mr
Pitcher was of the opinion that granting of licenses increased the value of
the property and led to houses being sold at inflated prices with the owner
of the licence then immediately applying for a fresh one for a neighbouring
house. The application was refused.
( One hundred and forty-six licenses were renewed ).
