A 32 page A5 pocket book telling the story of The Horse & Jockey. Colour and black & white pictures, old maps, new maps, paintings and illustrations.

The Horse & Jockey looks the part of a rural pub, with its stone floors, low ceilings, interesting spaces, and distinctive Tudor frontage.

     It occupies a building which was already into its second decade when Henry VIII walked up the aisle with Anne Boleyn, but appearances can be deceptive.

     It didn’t become a pub until 1793, when it consisted of just four small rooms either side of the main door and it didn’t acquire its black and white timber “look” until sometime in the early 20th century.
