Apparently, after the pub closed down, there
remained a stained-glass window depicting 
the feathers of the Prince of Wales. These
could be seen in Clayton's Gate, which runs
from Back Lane to Friargate.

PUBLIC HOUSE LICENCES
Thursday last was the general licensing day. Only one new license was granted, although there were six applications; that was the Prince of Wales Feathers, Clayton's Gate, Friargate. The house is, in fact, in Back Lane, but Mr. J. Clayton has improved the property there by making a road through.

A Hibernian named Edward Lundy, 26 years, was
charged at the Town Hall with stealing a chair, the
property of Miss Jane Winder of the Prince of
Wales Inn, Back Lane.

The previous night the prisoner had gone into the
house of Miss Winder, and decamped with a chair,
as he imagined unobserved. He was, however, seen
by Miss Winder, who put P.C. Ashby on his track.
The officer succeeded in capturing Lundy in the
act of negotiating for the sale of the chair to a 
broker. He was committed for trial, where he was
imprisoned for 6 months.
