Description:A pencil and coloured wash by John Whessell. This drawing captures Red Lion Square in about the early 1840s. The coaching inn, The Three Tuns, can be seen on the left hand side, which had occupied this building since the early 1790s. Unfortunately the building was demolished in the 1950s.

St. Giles' church can be seen in the background. At this time the church would have been that built in the Georgian style by William Smith, that was completed in 1721. In 1876 St. Giles was to be rebuilt in the Gothic revival style by Sir George Gilbert Scott, giving us the church which still stands today.
