A few doors up from the Bear & Billet are these two former town houses which were once joined together as an inn. Ye Old Edgar is actually much older than the Bear and Billet, dating from c1570, and one of the best examples of late Tudor building in Chester. The name commemorates the tradition that in AD 973, the Saxon King Edgar was rowed down the river Dee by eight tributory Celtic kings, in token of their submission to him. The inn name survives, although the building has been converted back to two dwellings.
