White Horse

The White Horse was an inn on the south side of Fishergate of which Alex Swansey was the innkeeper in the 1680s. It was one of three hostelries referred to as Swansey’s in the 17th-century diaries of Thomas Bellingham and Lawrence Rawstorne. Rawstorne in his entry for 29 July 1686 mentions that it possessed a bowling green. After Swansey’s death in 1686 it seems to have passed into the possession of Anthony Wall. See plan
