Reformed House, Bengal Street

The Reformed House was next door to the Jolly Hatters (later to become the Old Lancashire Hounds).  It was a  beerhouse opening in the the early 1830s, after the 1830 Beer Act allowed anyone to open a boozer in their house for payment of a small licence fee.  However, the Reformed House can't have been too successful, as it had been turned into a clothes shop by 1838 [1].
