Some history of The Leopard
More information on The Leopard in Kingswinford to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to The Leopard 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 Leopard at Kingswinford. There is information on Staffordshire dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.
