Fountain Inn, Rook Street
Former location of Fountain Inn, Rook Street (1). (c) googlemaps.
Like the Swan Inn on Fountain Street, the Fountain Inn was lost when Lewis's department store (now Primark) was built in the 1870s. A little warren of streets was lost then, including Bark Street, Rook Street and Meal Street . On the corner of Meal Street (parallel to Market Street) and Rook Street was the Fountain Inn in the mid-1800s.
