Ye Olde George Inn. Princess Victoria, who later became our queen, rested her carriage horses here at the end of the yard, whilst visiting the priory opposite. When alterations were made in 1974, a local mystery was solved. It was not known what happened to the iron stone which was ransacked by Oliver Cromwell. When builders unearthed arts of the inn footings they discovered the foundations are iron stone which must have been carried across the moat to the inn.
