Looks like it would have been where Game is now situated on the corner with College St.

That's fascinating.
Yeah, does look like around where Game is now.

Swindon would have 380 pubs today if it was still one for 480 persons.  Smiley

I had to sign a legal doc on my house stating I wouldn't open it as a beer house.... in Victorian Swindon this was quite common so legal moves were put in place to prevent it happening.

Today, though you can still find the odd shibeen in Swindon if you know where to look  Wink

Because I chose to play the fool in a six-piece band
First-night nerves every one-night stand
I should be glad to be so inclined
What a waste! What a waste!
Rock n Roll don't mind.
