Druid's Head

Above photo, date unknown. Showing what is obviously a fire on the top floor.

 

Probably the same pub as the "Ancient Druids" as early as 1826, the pub changed name to the "Druids Head" by 1832.

I am informed that the pub closed in 1871 and the whole street was demolished shortly afterwards.
