(The White Hart)
General view. The frieze windows on the first floor are a particular feature
A postcard shown below gives a date for the current building of 1640. There is no specific evidence for this date, but it looks feasible in view of the general structure.
A public house named The Antelope is mentioned on this site in 1574.
The inn was built by Edward, 1st Viscount Wimbledon (1572-1638) an English military man, naval commander and politician. He was Lord Lieutenant of Surrey 1627-1638 and Governor of Portsmouth 1630-1638
By the mid-17th century the name had changed to The White Hart, and it remained that until its closure in 1932
