Some history of the Golden Lion
More information on the Golden Lion on Lionel Street to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to the Golden Lion from another page. When building the site it is easier to place links as they crop up rather than go back later on. I realise this is frustrating if you were specifically looking for information on the Golden Lion. There is information on Birmingham dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.
