Warwickshire Bear at 147 High Street Henley-in-Arden, Warwicks
This bear and ragged staff emblem is over the door of No. 147 High Street. It has long been associated with the County of Warwickshire and with the earls of Warwick since as long ago as the 14th century. In the 1990's the County Council started using a more modern and simplified version which does not show the bear's chains. Why the emblem appears on this building is unknown. Perhaps it was used as a pub at some time but the listed building description makes no mention of this.
