HistoryEdit

Built as a school in 1820. Formerly had an inscription that read "Swan Downer, Esq., who died 22 February 1816, aged 81 years, bequeathed £8,100 for clothing and educating poor girls of this parish. The trustees appointed under his will erected this school, A.D. 1820". By 1850, the school had moved to the National Schools in Church Street.[1]

The pub was owned/operated by Kidd and Hotblack from 1886-1926 and Tamplin and Sons Ltd from 1926-1959 when it closed.[2]
