THREE LEGS OF MAN
'Over by the Town Hall'
It is tempting to synonymise this property with the
which occupied a position immediately opposite the Town Hall.
1737 William Giller
The following is transcribed from Deeds held at the Record Office in Bow Lane:
"Situate, standing, and being over against the Town Hall in Preston,
aforesaid, with the appurtenances now in the possession or occupation
of William Giller, Innkeeper, and now called or known by the name
'THREE LEGGS OF MAN', and also the two shopps or ground rooms
to the front of the said messuage or dwellinghouse."
