GREEN DRAGON TAVERN, No. 56, Fleet Street, mentioned in 1636, was destroyed by the Great Fire, and rebuilt in 1667, being then set back some six feet from its original frontage. It was here and at the “King's Head” further west that two out of four “ Clubs” were held in 1678 respecting the celebrated Papish plot of that year. And here stood Roger North when he viewed the great annual ceremonial of the burning of the Pope. **
