Hare and Squirrel, Spon End
|This name is a rather odd combination of symbols. Perhaps it is just meant to convey a pastoral impression.
The Hare and Squirrel was said by Alderman Hewitt to be 'the first house on coming into the city'. Here in 1764 he arrested Richard Swift, a notorious highwayman, who had been tried at the Old Bailey but escaped the gallows in return for volunteering evidence.
