Inn to be sold at auction - 1828

This classified advert from 1828 offers us an insight as to the large business concern which the White Horse must have been at the time that the main road from the north to London (A6) passed through the village.


Leicester Journal - Friday February 1st 1828
FRIDAY FEBRUARY 1ST 1828


At the house of Mr BOSTOCK, the White Horse Inn, Quorndon, on Monday, the eleventh day of February inst at four o’clock in the afternoon.

ALL that old established and well accustomed INN, called the WHITE HORSE, situate in Quorndon, in the County of Leicester, adjoining the high road to London and Manchester, with excellent stabling for 20 horses, including 6 loose boxes, saddle house, large barns and sheds for carriages, granaries, piggeries, yard and garden, to the same belonging, now in the occupation of Mr BOSTOCK, the owner.

Also a Messuage or Tenement, with Blacksmith’s shop adjoining.

The above premises are very desirable either for the purpose of investing money, or for occupation, being in full business and in the centre of a hunting country.

For particulars and to view the same apply to Mr BOSTOCK on the premises, or to Mr J M ROBINSON, Solicitor, Leicester
