Earliest 1851-

(Name from)

Prince of Orange

Latest 1854+

(Name to)

5 Bulwark Street



Originally known as the "Globe." An old map, circa 1850 unfortunately I haven't a copy of it, shows a public house called the "Prince of Orange" situated on what would eventually be called the "Archcliffe Fort." Apparently it only had this name from between 1851 and 1854 the name being changed by John Wray, however, after he left having been declared insolvent the new licensee changed the name again to the "Blue Post."
