Gloucester Journal; Saturday 13th December, 1879: Fire – A fire took place in Gloucester on Wednesday morning, on the premises of the Duke of Clarence beer house, Albert Street. It broke out in a stable and coach houses, and by the efforts of the Norwich Union Fire brigade it was confined there. The frozen state of the fire plugs caused some delay in getting water, but once obtained there was a plentiful supply and the fire was extinguished by four o’clock. The Liverpool, London and Globe brigade attended, but their services were not required.

In 1896 the Clarence Inn was a beerhouse owned by Arnold Perrett & Co. Ltd of Wickwar. The premises next door is known to have been 29 Albert Street.
