Fleece Inn, Withy Grove

Former location of Fleece Inn, With Grove. (c) googlemaps.

Long before the Kemsley House / Thompson House / Maxwell House newspaper offices and printing presses were built, Withy Grove had a warren of streets, courts and yards off it.  The Fleece Inn sat on Withy Grove directly opposite the more famous Seven Stars, at No.17 run by William Smallwood in 1850 [1].  The huge and horrible Tiger Tiger bar complex and nightclub entrance marks the spot of the Fleece.
