The first recorded use of brick at Stratford is at New Place, ‘a praty howse of brike and tymbar’ (fn. 80) built by Hugh Clopton, son of John Clopton during the last quarter of the 15th century. Brick did not become common, however, except for chimneys, until the early 1670’s and then, it seems, as a result of the various schemes of development connected with the navigation of the Avon. Two of the earliest brick houses in the town, the Swan’s Nest Hotel and No. 5 Chapel Street, were both built in or about 1673, and the bricks for the former are known to have been made on the site.

Le Bistrot Pierre and The Bear are operated by Le Bistrot Pierre Limited.
