STONE JUG INN, Haydock Street

STONE JUG INN
7 Haydock Street  /  8 Sizer Street South
*
The first landlord of this house was described in
the Deeds as a 'stone mason.'  I wonder if he
had a sculpted stone jug on display, either on
the interior or outside?
*
Incidentally, at the time, 'the stone jug' was
a euphanism for prison!  Can't see why this should
apply here though. See the following:
