Artist's Description

I passed by this little house several times when I went to Chesterfield, I always liked it but never took a photo until last week. I didn’t realise how old this little house was. According to the sign, it was built in 12th century. It’s one of the oldest Inn in England. It was formally a rest-house for “The knights Templar” in the year of “The Holy Crusades”. Then through&after the medieval period. It was used as two Butchers shops and Inn Accommodation the earliest discovered. Records show it already being an Inn in 1722 AD. Thanks for looking.
