|Notes / History||To the left of this picture you can see the original White Hart Inn. In addition to its role as a hostelry, this timbered building also hosted meetings of the local Justices of the Peace and property auctions, including the sale of
Merton Place, the former home of Admiral Lord Nelson.
The inn was badly damaged by bombing during the Second World War and much of the upper floor was destroyed. The current pub was created as part of postwar reconstruction work.
