Address as Melbourne Street in 1854.
Located on the south bank of the old Clough Fleet.

Mentioned in 1872 deeds of J. J. Rolfe, when estate acquired by Hogge & Seppings.

 

Between five and six o'clock on the morning of Wednesday 13th December 1876, John Hawley, landlord of the Rose & Thistle, drowned himself in the Walks rivulet. A passing boy offered assistance by throwing one end of his coat, but this had been indignantly refused.
The inquest returned a verdict that the deceased was in an unsound state of mind.
