In 1851, the Swan With Two Necks (now the "Royal Swan") was situated next door to the Victoria Tavern in a smaller property. By 1890, the Swan had taken over the Victoria and vacated the smaller property, which had become the Paragon Inn. The move took place prior to August 1868, when Adam Oddy applied for, and was granted, a new beer licence for the Paragon, despite an objection placed "on behalf of the Swan with Two Necks, which immediately adjoins the Paragon."[1]
