Articles about the White Hart; also a newspaper cutting and photo about a sheep, Spiby, which used to be taken into the pub on a lead!

There has been a White Hart in Wheatley since at least 1612, but the building which we are now looking at was the last location of an inn with this name, this being built probably sometime in the first half of the 19th century and closed in 1999. The clubroom, now recently developed as housing, was the meeting place for the Morris Men.

Also photo of White Hart in 1989.

Also image of the old White Hart, Wheatley, 1822, drawn by James Buckler. The signboard names the landlord as George Crookes. Buckler also sketched the Manor House and 1795 chapel on Bell Lane. (Bodleian Library, University of Oxford, MS Top Oxon a.69, fol. 588)
