On Monday 3rd September 1866, William Taylor, shop-keeper and publican was accused of having false weighing scales. Upon visiting the shop the inspector had discovered flour weighing scales which were one ounce against the purchaser and a counter balance which he believed were used in weighing meat. The latter had small lead weights loosely attached underneath, but could easily be removed to give five drachms against the purchaser. Being ill, Mr. Taylor was represented by his son who said that the counter balance was only used to weigh paint, he being a painter.
The magistrates considered it a very gross case and fined the defendant £2 with £1 13s costs.


Address also as 43 Millers Lane (1896) and as Long Catton Lane.

Licence provisionally refused 14.02.1939 & referred to compensation.
Closed under compensation 04.01.1941.
