The Crown Hotel (2) - sign, The Buttlands, Wells-Next-The-Sea, Norfolk
The Crown Hotel, which was formerly a coaching inn, has an unusual sign. The name of The Crown indicates loyalty to the reigning monarch. It has been used as an inn or pub sign for hundreds of years. In the past, when most people were illiterate, the sign was easily recognised by people. It was especially popular after the restoration of the monarchy in the 17th century. This hotel was probably in existence at that time.
