Pack Horse Inn, Briggate


Pack Horse Inn, Briggate
Description:
Undated View of the Pack Horse Inn in Pack Horse Yard between nos. 55 and 56 Briggate. At the time this was reputed to be the oldest pub in the city. The Pack Horse closed in 1987 and a new Pack Horse built on the site. A Templar cross is visible above the 'Pack Horse' sign. This was to signify the property was exempt from grinding their corn at the manorial corn mill in Swinegate.

When this building, which housed what was understood to be the oldest hostelry in the town, succumbed to the ever rising tide of mindless destruction, what happened to the 'Cross of the Knights Templar'? Was it put back onto the building that replaced the one here? If not, where did it go? Where is it now?
