The Holderness

Next door to yesterday's offering is the Holderness, a public house. It's a fairly old building appearing on maps going back to 1830s. However it is most certainly not a Tudor building as the external appearance might suggest. Apparently there was a fashion to decorate pubs in this mock-Tudor style in the early years of the last century (see also the Rose and Crown, Beverley).
Holderness, in case you were wondering, is the name given to an area of east Yorkshire running roughly from the river Hull to the North Sea. Click here and let Wikipedia tell you more.
