Fleece Innot c.1760
« on: Friday 16 June 17 11:07 BST (UK) »
Hi Nice People,  Hope all is well with you all. Just a quick question  - Has anyone got any knowledge of a place called the Fleece Inn , Rhayader,
 Radnorshire around 1750 ish as I think  part of my family  ( the Lewis's) were running it. It would appear that at least 2 generations died and are buried nearby and am hoping to go and see for myself in early September. Thank you for any help - kind regards Keith

Wales is famous for its Welsh sheep farmers, so I'm presuming there could have been several pubs/inns/taverns in the county of Powys/Radnorshire going by the name of "Fleece".

I've found one Fleece inn in Penybonting that was operating in the 1700s.
