Three Compasses

PLACES > Buildings > Inns
Depending on the resource used the location of this inn is on either Silver Street or Fox Hill. When it lost it’s license in 1909 (as did The Boot and the Prince and Princess) it was converted into two cottages more of which later.
The sign of a compass (I have never seen an image with this on, is there one anywhere?) arose perhaps from the number of landlords that were carpenters as well as landlord.
