The Swan Inn (2) - sign, Burford Street, Lechlade-on-Thames, Glos
In times past when many people couldn't read, inn and pub signs needed to contain a subject that was easy to illustrate and to recognise. The swan or often the white swan became a popular name as a result. It was also associated with innocence and with royalty.

The inn supplies beers from the Old Forge Brewery in the village of Coleshill, Oxfordshire.
