Spread Eagle, 25 West Orchard

Alternative Addresses:26 West Orchard
An eagle with its wings spread out was established as an emblem by the Romans. It is associated with many countries including Austria, Germany, Russia, Spain and France and with the bald eagle, U.S.A. British noble families adopted the spread eagle in their coats of arms after service in such countries, e.g. Viscount Montague in Hampshire and the Hoares in Wiltshire. In 1756 six soldiers were billeted here. Coventry's stocks were nearby. It closed c1906 and was compensated.
