Photo This was an ancient sign in use since the fourteenth century. It was often an indication that in the past cock fighting took place in the yard. In the seventeenth century the sign may also have advertised the sale of cock ale, which was 'ale mixed with the jelly of minced meat of a boiled cock, besides other ingredients'. In 1756 two soldiers were billeted here. It appears that c1860 a replacement COCK was built. By 1871 the premises was occupied by a currier and leather seller. In the 1891 census the premises are given as No.48 and occupied by Thomas Barton, Wine Porter. His daughter, Eliza L. Barton aged 16 is shown as a British Wine Shop Keeper. Could this be the fate of the COCK?
