42 Acre Street in 1939 directory.  There was another Butchers Arms, a Godsell’s house, just over a hundred yards away in Parliament Street. An old photograph of the Acre Street Butchers Arms shows a simple stone building on a pronounced slope with a wooden board fixed just below the upper floor windows: ‘William Watts. Licensed to sell beer & cider by retail to be consumed on the premises. Dealer in tobacco.’  A small inn sign hung between the windows. Upon removal of these signs there would be absolutely nothing to suggest that it had ever been a licensed house. It is now a  private residence.
