I am informed that a new "George and Dragon" was built in the 1930s which also supplied accommodation, so I assume it became an Inn at this time.


Changed name to the "George" unfortunately as yet date unknown and was closed, demolished and built upon.


As the information is found or sent to me, including photographs, it will be shown here.

Thanks for your co-operation. Every email is answered and all information referenced to the supplier.

This page will be updated as soon as further information is found.
