The Crown Inn was formerly the Angel Inn, and before that The Queens Arms. It may have had another name before this and changed when Queen Anne came to the throne in 1702. There was another Angel Inn recorded in Long Street so it may have had it's name changed to The Crown to differentiate from that one. The stables of this popular coaching inn were reached from Gumstool Hill until Chipping Hill cut through the Croft. A cabinet maker by the name of Omar Davis had his workshops around the back. The world famous Woolsack races start/finish here.
