King’s Head – High Street

Still finding previously unnoticed discoveries in photos we’ve known for years. We’re told that the King’s Head was Georgian in the main and even mediaeval at heart – you had to step down from the street into the main bar, often a sign of a building’s antiquity. It had it’s three gables added in the 1890’s and this is the first time I’ve noticed a photo (taken after the snow storm of 1881) providing a hint of how it looked before. Perhaps a photo of the complete building will turn up one day.
