Below Peter examining the credentials of the Golden Bee in Sheep street. There have been properties on the site of Sheep Street since 1196. The first battle of the English Civil War was fought on 12 miles away and some of the Parliamentarians were billeted at 40 Sheep street. The buidling is still there.

The Old Thatch is now the only thatched building in the town. It must have been outside the boundaries at one time because thatched roofs were banned in the seventeenth century because of the risk of fire. We saw this from the roof of the open topped bus which takes you all around the area and you can hop on and off all day long.

Below is the Dirty Duck or the Black Swan. This is near the Swan theatre and is where all the theatre crowd meet. It was given the name Dirty Duck by the American G.Is who were camped just across the river in World War 11.
