Coach Horses Much Park St 1907 The Coach and Horses is highlighted, two doors to the right of Whitefriars' Gate in Much Park Street, pictured here for the Godiva Procession of 1907. To the left of the old gatehouse is the Rose Inn. This was a common pub name since the seventeenth century. It indicates a stopping place for Hackney carriages and later stage-coaches and was an indication of the growth of traffic on the roads. In 1714 the Mercer's Company spent £2. 18s. 3d at the Coach and Horses on the proclamation of King George I. In 1735 the Vestry of St. Michael's church used this as one of their meeting places. Then in 1756 fourteen soldiers were billeted here. In 1925 the pub was closed upon the payment of compensation. It stood almost next door to Whitefriars Gate.
