Description:The building on the left, with the porch, is the King's Arms, originally named The Unicorn.

The King's Arms, like the Royal Oak on High Street, was a coaching inn on the London to Chester road. With the advent of the railways, like other coaching inns, the King's Arms went into decline. By 1841 the inn was used as a collection point for excise duties, and was later the official Inland Revenue Office, until 1900 when separate premises were opened.

The tall building on the right, behind the street lamp, once housed Burgess' first ironmongers shop. The present Burgess' shop is directly opposite.
