The White Horse (Nellies)
White Horse Inn, otherwise known as 'Nellies' from the days back prior to 1976 when the pub was owned and run by the Collinsons family. Francis Collinson purchased the pub form the church in 1927 and more notably her daughter Nellie, managed the place until its sale to the Samuel Smiths Old Brewery (Tadcaster).
The pub, originally a coaching in, pre-dates 1666 - when it was detailed in local records - and is probably the second oldest surviving Inn, in Beverley, next to that of The Sun Inn, which is opposite Beverley Minster. However, The White Horse Inn / Nellies, unlike other local holsteries, maintains most of its original features, including gas lights and chandeliers, small individual rooms, rickety stone and wooden floors, and open fires. The 'tobacco stained' walls, are actually painted that colour - as the premises, not unlike others, are constantly, and sympathetically, redecorated.
It is in the CAMRA inventory for unspoilt pub interiors.

Listed Buildings and Structures
Listed buildings and structures are officially designated as being of special architectural, historical or cultural significance. There are over half a million listed structures in the United Kingdom, covered by around 375,000 listings.
Listed status is more commonly associated with buildings or groups of buildings, however it can cover many other structures, including bridges, headstones, steps, ponds, monuments, walls, phone boxes, wrecks, parks, and heritage sites, and in more recent times a road crossing (Abbey Road) and graffiti art (Banksy 'Spy-booth') have been included.

In England and Wales there are three main listing designations;
Grade I (2.5%) - exceptional interest, sometimes considered to be internationally important.
Grade II* (5.5%) - particularly important buildings of more than special interest.
Grade II (92%) - nationally important and of special interest.

There are also locally listed structures (at the discretion of local authorities) using A, B and C designations.

In Scotland three classifications are also used but the criteria are different. There are around 47,500 Listed buildings.
Category A (8%)- generally equivalent to Grade I and II* in England and Wales
Category B (51%)- this appears generally to cover the ground of Grade II, recognising national importance.
Category C (41%)- buildings of local importance, probably with some overlap with English Grade II.

In Northern Ireland the criteria are similar to Scotland, but the classifications are:
Grade A (2.3%)
Grade B+ (4.7%)
Grade B (93%)
