Barley Mow

The Barley Mow used to be in the Hundred, where Alma Terrace now stands.

The name first appears in 1823.

It was originally called the Cartwheel. The house was a coaching inn.

The police station which is to the left of the building now covers a duck pond

and this was the entrance to the building. The pub was demolished in 1869.

Kings Head public house

Part of this old establishment is Tudor.

Records of this building date from the 18 century

when the town was growing by the trade brought by the new turnpike roads.

For many years there was a hidden room in the Kings Head,

and this was reached through a door in a fire place and up a flight of stairs.

The building is now Berties Restaurant.

The Tavern public house

The Tavern public house, previously know as the Phoenix

The present pub is thought to stand on the site of a much older one.

The name Phoenix suggests that the building arose from the ashes of its predecessor.

The present building is 19th century, but stands over a Tudor cellar.

Sceptre House, The Sceptre public house

The Sceptre only lasted for 100 years from 1871 to 1972.

It was the last new pub to be built in the town.

The wall of this Victorian corner building has bunches of grapes modelled on it;

they look most pleasing when freshly painted.
