The Scole Inn, established 1655 and still going strong

Established in 1655 as a Coaching Inn once had a sign created by John Fairchild that straddled the road costing £1057 in 1655. Apart from a White Hart it included carved figures of Diana, Actaeon with angels, Neptune, Justice, Lions and several other figures all executed by Fairchild, one of which acted as a weather vane. The sign was removed c1750. There was once a round bed here enough to hold 15 to 20 couples, but that along with the sign was gone by c1803. It is also sometimes referred to as 'The White Hart' from the sign: Link
