SK0347 : Horse Shoe House

taken 5 years ago, near to Froghall, Staffordshire, Great Britain

Horse Shoe House
Horse Shoe House
An auction of property at Rake Edge, including coal mines, was held at "...the sign of the Horse Shoe, at Lees..." in 1815. There were, presumably, plenty of thirsty miners in the district at that time to keep the inn going. It still appears on the Ordnance Survey map for 1925 as the Horse Shoe Inn but by the time of the 1967 map, it has become Horse Shoe House.
