Crown & Woolpack

Date of picture: 1937

Picture source: Richard Greatorex

The Crown & Woolpack was situated at 5 Cornmarket. Built in 1700 it was originally known as The Old Kings Head and partially demolished in 1788 with the remains being incorporated into the Crown and Sceptre, eventually coming to be known as the Crown and Woolpack.

Kelly’s Directory of Lincolnshire, 1933, lists this premise as “Dales Alfred, wine & spirit merchant, 5 Cornmarket”.

I possess a copy of the “Tenancy Agreement of the “ Crown & Sceptre “ Louth” between Soulby Sons & Winch Ltd. and Maurice Dales, dated 4th January 1934, from the details contained within, is clearly the later named “Crown and Woolpack”. The above image is of an advertisement from Mortons’ Lincolnshire Almanack, 1937. The name Alfred Dales is clearly seen in the front right window, and though the name of this public house is not given, the sign on the corner does suggest a crown.
