Queen's Aid House

 

 

 

"GOD GRANTE OVR RYAL QVEEN

IN ENGLAND LONGE TO RAIGN

FOR SHE HATH PVT HER HELPING

HAND TO BILD THIS TOWN AGAIN"

 

That is the inscription as written on the plaque on the storey below the gable end, between the windows. It commemorates the financial help arranged by Queen Elizabeth the First after much of Nantwich was gutted in the fire of 1583.

   The blaze started in a brew house near to the River Weaver and spread through the centre of town as far as Sweetbriar Hall in Hospital Street. So buildings such as the Queen's Aid House on The Square and the Crown Hotel in High Street date back to that time.

 

lLocation: In The Square, right in the centre of town.

lOpening times: Normal trading hours.

lAdmission: None - it is a sweets, cigarettes, etc, shop.

lDisabled access?: There is no access to the inside of the building's upper storeys.

lWebsite: None.
