The original alehouse in Heddon on the Wall was Church House opposite the Swan NZ1366 : Old School House, Heddon on the Wall. It was known as Widow Reeds' alehouse. In 1842, the sale of ales was transferred from Church House to the cottage almost opposite, which became known as the Swan. Its owner, John Whitfield Thompson, sold it to Newcastle Breweries on 5th August 1897. The old cottage was demolished, and the present building built. It was opened by Mr George Reay on Christmas Eve 1899. The Amos family ran the blacksmiths shop next door until 1971 when it was incorporated into the Swan as a restaurant and they moved to new premises NZ1366 : Amos Brothers, Roman Wall Forge, Heddon on the Wall.
History taken from a plaque in the refurbished doorway of the Swan (2010).
