grid reference TM 366 793

The Swan was built late in the 16th century, with late 17th century alterations. It was still open at least as late as 1967 (the latest licensing records we've been able to access).

The pub is listed in Wissett Street in the 1881 census.

It's shown on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. interactive map
