The White Lion has been here since the beginning of the 16th Century, and has barely changed. I doubt much else in this view of the village's old centre has changed in centuries, either.
Four of the pub's customers were sentenced to death in 1829 for 'uttering': attempting to pass a forged £5 note. Apparently they were reprieved.
I'm not sure whether it's clear that this photo was taken looking down a fairly steep hill; note the road level relative to the ground floor windows of the pub.
