Statement of Interest

Formerly known as 'Westwood'. Lilliesleaf had two inns when Groome was writing, at which time this building was the 'Black Bull Inn'. The corniced window, formerly a door, would have been approached by a forestair.

Recent (2002) re-harling revealed earlier fabric possibly of 16th century date.
