The former Masons Arms, in Taunton

It was located a few yards from the back entrance to a current pub.

It’s in the shadow of the town’s premier church.

And it was more recently used as the MP’s office.

The old photos, supplied by Steve Wild, are of course of the Masons Arms, across the road from St Mary Magdalene Church and not far from the Perkin Warbeck.

In the old days, customers would enter the hostelry from a side door.

Unfortunately, it is yet another Taunton pub that has closed in the last few decades.
