TQ1649 : 'The Star', Station Road, Dorking (3)

'The Star', Station Road, Dorking (3)
A remarkable building, with the upper storeys entirely slate-hung. What is more, the slates are not a uniform grey - many are warmer, rusty, colours. The pub is prominently sited at the junction of West Street (on the right) and Station Road, but sits on a rather oddly shaped plot. St Martin's Church is visible at the far end of Church Street, on the left.

Slate is by no means a local material in south-east England, so that slate-hung buildings are few and far between. The only other slate-hung pub known to me in the SE is SU8601 : The Spotted Cow, at Hunston, near Chichester.
