When Nicholas Street was widened in 1864, the building on the corner of High Street and the Angel Inn were demolished, the house next door to The Angel became unstable and collapsed in July 1865. Although The Angel had only a 14 foot frontage in High Street, the building was L shaped and took up 35 feet of Nicholas Street.
Prior to demolition, the house on the corner was occupied by Thomas Bubb, beer retailer & wine shop. Philip Stinton was also listed as a Hackneyman and Jobmaster. Edward Allen was Secretary of the Bristol Licensed Victuallers’ Protection Association and Benevolent Fund.
