The clearance of buildings from the centre of the Market Place by 1830 opened up the view to the church. The Sun Inn, on the right, was one of the reputed overnight stops for the future Charles II as he fled after the Battle of Worcester in 1651. Rebuilt in 1913 as a garage showroom, it is now part of the Fleece Hotel.
