It seems probable that the license of the Lamb Inn was transferred from one property to another. It is known that the original Lamb Inn in Castle Street was pulled down c.1840 and the site was used to construct the Magistrates Court and Police Station.

The second Lamb Inn was at the bottom of Long Street. Frank Simpson wrote in the ‘Dursley Gazette’ about his reminiscences of the pub: “Just to the left of the Priory at the foot of Long Street was the Lamb Inn and next door was a pair of dwelling houses. Sonny Green and his wife Kate ran it around 1934, but he died and she married Percy Butcher who originated from Wick. When Percy died, Kate carried on running it for a short time with her niece. I remember part of the pub was given over to being a sweetshop. And there was an aeroplane propeller on the wall which came off a plane in the First World War.” 

The Railway Inn was close by (qv).
