Also listed as the BROWN COW & HARE.

The sign is reputed to be based on the belief that a Witch could transform into a hare and `suck cows dry'.

On the night of Friday 27th December 1850, between the hours of six and twelve o'clock, the bed-room of Mr. Armes was entered by thieves who stole two watches and seven sovereigns.

House purchased by the Eastern Midland Railway Company in 1882 and soon demolished. To be replaced by the RAILWAY STORES.
