|PUB LIST||PUBLIC HOUSES||Barry Smith and Paul Skelton|
22 Woolcomber Street
Police reports mention it in 1843. There is also a report of a great storm that year when it was used to house shipwrecked mariners. I was never able to connect a brewer with this one.
The West side of the street had to be demolished in 1893-94 to widen the road.
By arrangement with Dover Corporation, the owner received £1,005, the lessee, £318.19s and the occupier £108.5s.
