Three Jolly Weavers, Much Park Street
|Jolly suggests someone who is of lively and happy disposition, jovial, laughing as someone does when slightly, but pleasantly, intoxicated. In earlier times it also meant healthy and well developed or splendid. It was also used, as new, as an admiring intensifier. Something could be described as good, or more forcefully as jolly good. Weaving played a vital part in the city's economy in the Middle Ages.
In 1756 four soldiers were billeted here.|
