The White Hart Inn :
- There was some speculation from local feedback, during my researches in the mid 1980's, as to the existance of a 9th Pub in Blunham
and upon further investigation , I found there was a White Hart Inn -
(Beerhouse ? ) . It was
somewhere in Blunham but to date the excact location still remains a mystery. Now , with hindsight (a unique talent to have) - I could have said at the time
, "where abouts was it ? " - The tenants as recorded were a William Astell
and son Richard (c1737) ,
as mentioned in the Luton & Bedford archives : Ref - PM2846 .
Also see my refs - The Wheatsheaf
- or ref 12/ Misc & Mash -
for Alehouse / Beerhouse origin.
The White Hart Pub, old site in nearby Gt. Barford village is just a mile away and also researched, but no match on names was found here. Thirsty workers 'could' have done a mile walk, or Pony & Trap, also some Blunham fields nearly reach the river Gt. Ouse at Gt. Barford and their old White Hart site. - (22/05/21)
