The location today
The Leather(n) Bottle was situated at the top of Spring Lane and at the end of Heath End Road in the 1830s.
It would have been a popular stopping point for locals in this part of the village and for travellers walking across the heath
to Handy Cross and High Wycombe. The landlord of the tavern was John Sarney/Sawney and he encouraged the disgruntled paper makers
to rally against the mill owners who were installing new machinery in the mills in the valley below - at the cost of their jobs.
