Beehive, 19 Tower Street

These premises have been known by different names during their history:FROMTONAME
18381844WHITE LION
The beehive has long been a symbol of industry. It must also have appealed as a pub sign because of its distinctive shape. Until 1844 this was the White Lion and on 13th December of that year an inquest was held at the pub, now called the Beehive. This was a home-brew pub until c1920. It appears to have closed shortly before the Second World War.
