The Crown was not listed in 1900 directory, but may have been rebuilt at around this time?
The pub was closed in 1967 or 1968, as part of a scheme to reduce the number of "excess" alcohol licenses.
It's also listed in St Peters Street (in 1839 and earlier).
It's shown (though not named) on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. interactive map
