|||John O'Gaunt Hotel. (Rothwell) (1 comment)
View of John O'Gaunt Hotel on Pontefract Road.
A reason for the open shed
alongside the hotel is explained by the hotels slogan 'Good accommodation for man and beast'.
Legend has it that John of Gaunt killed the last wild boar.
Built by Mr. James Venty soon after the turnpike was formed in 1822.
