5 and 6 North Green Staindrop

  • Description

    "Grade II Listed former inn now two houses. The early to mid 18th century Queen's Head Inn and posting-house was described in 1827 and 1834 as one of nine inns and public houses in Staindrop. Also around this time it contained a subscription news-room and justice was administered from here on alternate Saturdays. I'm advised by a direct descendant of Eleanor Brunskill (1770-?) that she was landlady of the inn and was, as is frequently the case, also a Maltster. In the 'History, Directory, and Gazetteer, of the Counties of Durham and Northumberland' of 1827 the Library in the inn is described as 'kept by Mr Heppel, the bookseller' and that the Post-Mistress in the Queen's Head Inn and Posting house is Eleanor Brunskill."
