CAPITAL BEERHOUSE FOR SALE
MR. JABEZ B. JONES is instructed by the owner,
Mr. John Leaver, who is retiring from business, to
offer for sale by Auction, on Thursday 25th February 1875.

ALL that well-bult and commodious BEER-HOUSE
called the "WELLINGTON INN," Bedford Street,
Preston; together with the Brewhouse and other
appurtenances.

The Wellington Inn is situated in a central and densely
populated district, and has access from both Bedford 
Street and Byron Street. The premises have been occupied
for the past 17 years by the owner, who is now retiring
from business, and a more favourable opportunity for 
entering into a profitable and respectable trade seldom
occurs. The property is free from Ground Rent.
