Trafalgar Arms, 51 Trafalgar Street
|Alternative Addresses:||18 Trafalgar Street|
The Trafalgar Arms. Note the three storey weavers cottages with the large workshop windows.
Cape Trafalgar is a headland on the Atlantic coast of Cadiz, near the strait of Gibraltar. It was here on 21st October 1805 that Lord Nelson achieved a magnificent victory over the Franco-Spanish fleet, ending Napoleon's sea power and the threat of invasion, but at the cost of his own life.
In 1935 this was a Flowers house and was reputed to serve the best pint of Guiness in the Midlands. It has been said that the cellars of the Trafalgar were located beneath the course of, or at least in close proximity of the River Sherbourne, which kept the beer at a constant temperature all year round.|
