Hind, Little Park Street
|These premises have been known by different names during their history:||FROM||TO||NAME|
Little Park Street 19th century watercolour by H. Masters.
The hind is the female red deer, the male being the stag or hart. Early examples of this sign relate to St Giles, who is said to have withdrawn into a remote forest where a hind lived with him ans supplied him with milk. When the king's huntsmen pursued the hind St Giles caused thick bushes to spring up to protect it.
In 1756, six soldiers were billeted here and in 1760 a grand flower show was held here. In the same year the pub was for sale. This appears to have been the ROEBUCK.|
