About this image
There has been a hostlery here since 1841, though the present building was altered , possibly in 1926. Prior to this it was a beerhouse (no spirit licence).
On the 1841 Census Judith Bradley (nee Roe) is the occupier of Rutland Cottage with no occupation listed. On the 1851 Census she is still the occupant and her occupation is listed as "beer seller". (Information kindly supplied by Phill Rooney).
