FARMERS' ARMS, Market Street

FARMERS' ARMS
6 Back Lane
- later 25 Market Street / 15 Orchard Street
The Farmers' Arms was not on the corner of Orchard Street prior to it being re-built,
but see below.
*
The stable entrance to the left of this picture can still be seen - see below.

*
*
The 'Farmers' Arms' in it's days as the "Jolly Farmer"
in the early 1970's
*
 Definitely at the junction of Market Street and Orchard Street, looking down the latter.
Note the architectural features that are similar on this and the photo above it.
Note the bricked up doorway on the more recent photograph.
