BOAR'S HEAD INN
Originally this may have been a hostel for pilgrims
on their way to the Great Abbeys of the North, because
at this point on the route, there was a parting of the ways.

The present inn was built around 1450 and is now
a Grade II listed building.

In the 19th century it became a coaching inn on the
turnpike road system, providing a resting place for
weary travellers and their horses
