Crown And Anchor, Horsley

  • Description

    "Horsley village has two pubs both on the south side of Hexham Road. The Crown is the grander of the two buildings. It was built in 1805 as a coaching inn on the old Hexham Road in ashlar stone and decorated by classic features such as the semi-circular stone hood above the front door. Its symmetry survives in spite of the plethora of signs. Its original sixteen pane sliding sash windows have survived. In contrast, The Lion & Lamb was originally a farm and is not as crisp a piece of architecture. However, its vernacular style is enhanced by its surviving sandstone flagged roof and Roman stones makes the building of equal interest and merit.
