Royal George

This house on Lever Street has a long history as a public house.  Until relatively recently it was the Royal George pub


The 1844 map of the area shows that it was a public house for more than 170 years.  As you can see, in 1844 it was called The Imperial Wreath.

By the end of the 19th century the pub had expanded into the space previously occupied by a pair of back-to-back houses.  Clearly at some point after this the houses were demolished to make way for the four-storey commercial/industrial building you can see in the current images at the top of this page.
