NY9913 : The Ancient Unicorn Hotel

taken 9 years ago, near to Bowes, County Durham, England

The Ancient Unicorn Hotel
The Ancient Unicorn Hotel
The only pub in the village, currently closed and up for sale, so no pints available in Bowes. Once an important coaching inn on the route across Stainmoor, but now in a quiet backwater. The building is grade 2 listed, the front part visible here is of the mid 18thC. I am reliably informed that the pub has been refurbished and has reopened, which is good news for villagers and passers by [April 2016].
