Mossley on Monday: Fleece Inn

No, it doesn't always rain in Mossley, but sometimes the rain can add something to a photo.

The Fleece Inn, opposite Mossley Library, was built in 1808, but at first was called "Letters", then "Croppers", only becoming "The Fleece" in 1819. It was on the corner of Waterton Lane, with fields behind, as Arundel Street was not yet built. In the 1870s, lark singing contests were held at the inn, the winner being the bird that sang the longest!

See Google Aerial View of this location. The funfair seems to have been set up on Mossley Market Place when the aerial photo was taken!
