The Woolpack is one of Buckingham's oldest inns. The inns location at the entrance to the town from the Sheriff's Bridge, placed it in a prime spot, as this was the main coach road from London. When the new London Road Bridge was built in 1805, its position became less advantageous. In 1693 the Woolpack was kept by Mary Evans, the widow of a tanner, and she owned the leasehold with her son Samuel Evans, also a tanner of Buckingha. The premises was originally leased in 1574, to Katherine Agard, at a rent of 2d. per year, for the term of 2,000 years.
