Church Street

Previous | Home | Next

The buildings seen here on the left hand side of Church Street, including the ancient White Horse pub, have all been demolished, first to allow the street to be widened near the crossroads (1963), and then to allow the Quadrant shopping centre to be built (1966). The White Horse was originally called The King's Head and should not be confused with the White Horse Inn where King Henry VIII sometimes stayed, and which stood behind what is now called the Anchor archway in High Street North.
