1968?




When sold in 1823, two cottages and an adjoining blacksmiths shop were included.

Mrs Gould provided a supper, attended by about twenty gentlemen of the town, on Tuesday 27th September 1870. The catering was highly commended and a very convivial evening was the result.

Frederick Cook was accused of having assaulted Francis Stammers on 15th May.
Stammers had refused to quit the premises after demanding unpaid wages for a period when he was employed by Mr. Cook as a blacksmith. On that day he had been refused payment and asked to return when Cook paid other employees.
After doubt was put before the magistrates as to when Stammers had been injured and by whom, the case was dismissed as being quite unnecessary to be brought before the Court.
Both parties to share the costs.


Demolished 1968 to make way for a supermarket.
