The MASONIC ARMS in 1845.

Address as Church Street in 1865.

Full licence granted Tuesday 25th August 1868 to William Woodcraft.

The Chief Constable objected to licence renewal at the February 1906 Sessions. Inspector Windsor reported that this was a very old fashioned house, with about one room for the public. It was in very bad repair, tumbling to pieces. The tenant was employed in the shoe trade and away from the premises for much of the day.
There were 12 other ( licensed ) houses within 200 yards.

Licence provisionally refused 07.02.1906 and referred to Compensation.
Closed under Compensation 23.08.1907.
