The Citizen: October 1887 – Serious Fire Averted. On Thursday morning an alarm of fire was raised at the Crown Inn, The Cross, Stroud. The captain and a few members of the Volunteer Fire brigade were aroused and on arriving at the house discovered that a fire had broken out in a bedroom, the inmates being in a state of frenzy. Water was quickly obtained and the danger averted. This promptitude on the part of the firemen doubtless prevented a serious conflagration, the property in the neighbourhood being amongst the oldest and most crowded in town.
The Crown was completely rebuilt by Cheltenham Original Brewery following the acquisition of the Nailsworth Brewery and their pub estate. The new-look Crown Inn was built of brick with stone window surrounds.
