Morris Dancer Pub. Listed 18th house. Originally New Hall Farmhouse in red and blue brick. It was originally built 1625 -1675 and the name ‘New Hall’ is medieval so it likely stands on the site of an earlier building. It is effectively two houses built together side by side since it has two separate roofs. Inside all rooms are interconnected. At one time it had a priest-hole approached from a spiral staircase and stepping through a doorway. It was a deep niche in the wall designed to appear empty from outside. The house was bought by the L.C.C. in 1947 and converted into a pub
