A fascinating past

The Mitre, a pub of long and venerable history, stands on the site of two former inns ? the Blackmoor's Head and The Cock and Magpie. The first inn took its name from Robert Blackmoor, a medieval chantry priest. The coming of the railway took away much of the river trade upon which both inns depended to the point where by 1874 the Cock & Magpie was the only remaining pub.
