1983/OLD FOUNTAIN: 3 Baldwin Street EC1. Whitbread./../../Pub Listing

1991/OLD FOUNTAIN: 3 Baldwin Street EC1. Whitbreads . This 200 year old pub is one of the few in the East London & City area selling . It may well get its name from a local well or fountain in an area that was noted for underground rivers. The old style of the pub has been well kept up and there is a preservation order on the building./../../Pub Listing
