Samuel Pepys in Petersfield, Hampshire: Petersfield Plaques #3

Winton House in the High Street. Once an inn, in the 17th century this had Petersfield's only bowling alley. It declined in importance when Dragon Street was built, creating a by-pass.

'c. 1580
This building
formed part of The White Hart,
Petersfield's leading coaching inn
until the 18th century, with stabling
for over 100 horses. Charles II,
Samuel Pepys and Peter the Great
all stayed here.'
