In 1859 William Reeve was named as owner of a farm called The Banks Of Clay. A carter named Cousins had collected a consignment of 125 coombs of wheat for a Mr. Judd, the cartage of which had not been paid. The offence was said to have taken place in 1854. Owing to the time taken for the event to come to court, His honour felt bound to conclude that the claim was a got-up one and the judgement was in favour of Mr. Judd.

Lilly Hearns 1910 -  Image thanks to William Smith
1910 - Lilly Heanes, nee Means, daughter of last occupant.
By this time the house has apparently ceased trading as a beerhouse.

The property was owned by James William Means by 1929 to at least 1933.
However by 1937 he was living at Laurel House. Had the Banks Of Clay been renamed or had it been demolished at about that time?

Created to serve the navvies digging the Middle Level Drain.
Existed from c1850 - c1900

Demolished.
