Detail from: Memorial to 158 Squadron by Peter W. Naylor, 2009

Arms of Queen Adelaide


     Built in 1820, as a boarding house, it was at first run by James Fisher and then by Richard Liddell. After 1827, when the Duchess of Clarence stayed there for a few days Liddell changed the name to Clarence Hotel and added the Royal Coat of Arms to the porch after Adelaide became the wife of William IV and hence the Queen. The building later served as a magistrates' office and a police barrack. Since the Countryside Commission took over in 1974 the arms and the fine ironwork have been well preserved.
