20 Hart Street

Hart Street

20 and 22 Hart Street are two separate buildings but constructed as a hall and cross-wing probably in the mid C15th. Now a shop & office at No.20 and Magoos Bar at No.22. The latter was known as ‘The Old Rope Walk’ and the 1878 OS map still shows the very long, narrow burgage plot marked up as ‘Rope Walk’. First documented in 1861 Wm. Cook as a rope and twine maker, In 1915 it was still in the same family. No 20 was the Unicorn PH. until 1911.
