RR finally found what number 50 was, The Towers, I don't think you should publish you experiences in there.

In the mid 18th century there were about 14 public houses on Long Row

Twenty  or was it twenty four ?
Such as Wallace hero of Scotland & Alderman Wood
Most were beer houses

 Ian more pubs were "lost" when St Ann's was redeveloped  (about 50)
Same with The Meadows (about 30)

Ian, cast your mind back to the 60s, imagine you are outside the Sawyers arms then walk away from town past the bottom of Stanford street along Greyfriar gate until you arrive at a roundabout at the junction  of Greyfriar gate/Canal st/Maid Marian way. Look across the roundabout and there is the Bowling Green. It's number 52 on Trogg's map at the top of this thread. It's no longer there, the area has been redeveloped.

In the early 60s the pub had an impressive Rock Ola juke box which, due to much repetitive playing, must have worn out their copy of Please Please me.

The Bowling Green was later renamed The Narrow Boat in its later years before eventual demolition.
