Washaway Inn was used to hold the monthly petty sessions for the Hundred of Trigg
until the 1870s. In the 1760 and 1770s a Venison Club was also held where
neighbouring gentry dined several times a year. Maclean quotes the diary of a Mr.
George Browne who dined at the club in 1768 and 1775 and who recorded several curious
facts and incidents.
